Piano Duets: Romantic Composers
Romantic composers presents nine carefully selected duets in a variety of styles and moods. The collection includes new editions of celebrated works for piano duet by Bizet, Brahms, Dvorak, and Schumann, and attractive new arrangements of orchestral and chamber pieces, including a piano quartet by Mendelssohn and an orchestral suite by Tchaikovsky.
To complete its survey of the Romantic age, the collection features a piano study by Liszt, a nocturnal song-without-words by Fanny Mendelssohn, and an excerpt from Berlioz’s La damnation de Faust. Providing varied, accessible, and attractive repertoire, this volume is ideal for intermediate players looking for recital material or for those exploring the medium.
