Description

Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe are perhaps the most thrilling young duo performing today, offering adrenalized classical concerts that are revolutionizing the piano duo experience for the 21st century. Described as "Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers transposed from the dance floor to the keyboard" (The Southampton Press) and "the intense synchronization of genius" (ThirdCoast Digest), Greg and Liz bring their joyous camaraderie and refined artistry to the concert stage, dazzling audiences around the world as a four-hand and two-piano team.

The Anderson & Roe Duos & Duets series features inspiring arrangements as performed by the duo---from settings of treasured opera melodies to medleys of popular movie music. The pieces are edited with fingering and other directions that facilitate rehearsal and performance, making them accessible for advancing students as well as for concert performers.

Sleigh Ride: A Holiday Excursion offers an audience-pleasing rendition of Leroy Anderson's timeless classic. The opening of this arrangement presents the iconic main theme with playful staccato notes interrupted by flashes of sparkling passagework. As the excitement builds, the players exchange jiving rhythms, percussive chords, and dazzling glissandos. Just when the sleigh ride is about to end, a few musical surprises bring this lively duo to a whimsical conclusion, making the arrangement a perfect choice for a finale or encore to a holiday recital. Music videos performed by Anderson & Roe can be found on www.andersonroe.com.
