Felix Mendelssohn's Allegro brillant, Op. 92, for one piano, four hands, was written in 1841 and dedicated to Clara Schumann. The expressive Andante theme alternates between the Secondo and Primo, segueing into the virtuosic Allegro assai vivace movement with a rush of scales. All fingering, metronome marks, and notational omissions have been supplemented by the editors. Allegro brillant is considered one of the most challenging pieces in the entire piano duet repertoire.

The Piano Duet as Teaching Medium

Duet playing should form an integral part of the development of all young pianists.

Duet playing should form an integral part of the development of all young pianists. Personal development, reduction of performance anxiety and skills such as listening, rhythmic stability and sight-reading are but a few components that can be improved through duet playing. Piano playing is mostly a lonely activity and one of the best ways to counteract this isolation is to become involved in collaborative musicianship through duet playing. The piano duet has an extended history, beginning in the Pre-Baroque and reaching its pinnacle during the Romantic period. After dwindling interest in the early twentieth century, renewed attention has recently been given internationally to duet playing and composition, resulting in large numbers of new duet publications. It is a matter of concern that duet playing is sadly neglected in the tuition of many beginners. This may be due to factors such as lack of knowledge of duet repertoire, difficulty in obtaining such repertoire and problems with incorporating still another aspect in the piano lesson. To provide some guidelines for the teacher, practical considerations such as partner compatibility, leadership, repertoire and publication choice, memorising, page turning and the preparation process have been investigated. Technical aspects are dealt with because adjustments are needed during duet playing compared to solo playing. These include seating, the position of the arms and hands, fingering, dynamic variety, balance, timing and the use of pedal. A factor contributing to the neglect of incorporating duet playing in teaching seems to be the difficulty in sourcing appropriate repertoire. Duet publications generally offer only limited guidelines concerning grading whereas duet repertoire lists include mostly advanced compositions using undefined grading over a broad spectrum. Beginner repertoire is seldom referred to in duet repertoire lists, which complicates the process of finding appropriate beginner repertoire. The fact that sheet music suppliers only have a limited variety of duet publications available exacerbates the problem. The researcher has endeavoured to find a solution for this problem by devising a selective syllabus of beginner duets. Because no relevant grading system is available, such a system had to be devised. The publications of six well-known piano beginner methods were analysed to establish the basic sequence in which musical concepts are introduced to the beginner pianist. Following these guidelines a grading system of eight levels has been developed. A search for duet repertoire has been undertaken by scrutinising a piano curriculum, various piano duet examination syllabi as well as the researcher's duet collection, and by investigating the availability of repertoire in libraries, sheet music suppliers and on the Internet. Subsequently suitable duets were played and graded. The outcome of this dissertation is a suggested graded duet syllabus for the beginner pianist. A compact disc of selected piano duets performed by the author and a partner is included.

The Mozart Anthology

"The Mozart Anthology" is a celebration of Mozart's music, offering five arrangements, fantasies, and showpieces as performed by the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo. Each work translates the spirit of Mozart's original vision to the keyboard in a highly pianistic manner, making attractive additions to any piano duo's recital repertoire. The volume begins with the somber Chorale Prelude ("Der, welcher wandert diese Strasse voll Beschwerden") from Die Zauberflöte, arranged for two pianos in homage to the chorale preludes of Bach-Busoni. By contrast, the "Papageno!" fantasy is essentially a game of musical twister for piano duet featuring a mash-up of Papageno's felicitous arias (also from Die Zauberflöte). Two works in this anthology originate from Mozart's opera Così fan tutte. A pair of women bid a heartfelt farewell to their lovers departing by sea in the two-piano arrangement of "Soave sia il vento," while the Grand Scherzo recasts the swirling, flirtatious events that close Act I as a four-movement sonata for piano, four-hands. Rounding out the anthology is Anderson's irreverently off-the-wall and dizzyingly virtuosic "Ragtime alla turca" for two pianos, based on Mozart's Rondo "Alla turca," K. 331. All five works have been newly formatted and edited. Music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Arranged and adapted for two pianos and piano, four hands by Greg Anderson (b. 1981). Advanced. 74 pages. Two copies required for performance of two piano works. Published by Awkward Fermata Press.

Piano duets, whether for one or two, are among the most enjoyable forms of music-making in which pianists, professional or amateur, can take part. Moreover, they provide invaluable practice in ensemble-playing.It is often thought that the duet repertoire consists entirely of arrangements of classical symphonies, overtures, and chamber music, but this is not the case. A great many works, often of the finest quality, were originally written for one medium or the other.This book is divided into three main sections. Part I describes the chronology of piano duets and music for two pianos, from their earliest beginnings in the 16th century to the present day; Part II discusses some of the special technical problems that arise when playing them; Part III provides aselective list of original duets that have genuine musical or historical interest.

The Fantasie in F Minor, Op. 103, is Franz Schubert's most-often performed piano duet and is considered one of the great masterpieces of ensemble piano repertoire. Schubert completed the Fantasie in 1828, just a short time before his death later that year. The work demonstrates his mature style and is filled with some of his best writing. Its four connected movements contain lovely and enticing melodies, dramatic gestures in French overture style, a brilliant scherzo and trio, and a virtuosic fugue.
