Anthology of Piano Duets - Level 2


The criteria used in selecting these Level 2 pieces differ from Level 1 in two important respects.  All the pieces are still in the five-finger position, but some examples demand a degree of independence of hands, while other pieces are significantly long – thus developing greater concentration.  There is, again, a mixture of pupil Primo and Secondo parts.  All the commonly used subdivisions of the beat are cultivated in these pieces.  Pitch should present no particular problem. There is repertoire by John Kinross, Anton Diabelli, Cornelius Gurlitt, and Hermann Berens. In addition there are five newly composed pieces by John Kember, Christopher Norton and Jeroen Speak.
