Product Details


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.

Johann Sebastian Bach's St. Matthew Passion, considered one of the monuments of music literature, is filled with multidimensional levels of symbolism, theological understanding, and psychological insight. In this awe-inspiring arrangement for two pianos, four hands, five movements from the original work have been carefully selected. Together they retain the dramatic arch of the story, but pare the music down to a more manageable duration suitable for performance on recitals. Two copies required. "Aria: Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben," "Aria: Erbarme dich," "Aria: Mache dich, mein Herze, rein," and "Chorale: O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden" are Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selections. A Federation Festivals 2020-2024 selection.
