A-Z of the Piano: D is for Duets
Here is a short package I made for In Tune’s A-Z of the Piano. The entire alphabet is available to download from the Radio 3 website, click on the screen shot below.
The piano is rare in that it’s an instrument that can be played by two people at the same time. The intimacy of sharing a stool and playing shoulder to shoulder can make for a very pleasant experience. And there are many great pieces of music composed for piano duet. Views from the stage and from the rehearsal room come from David Owen Norris, Pascal and Ami Rogé and the Labeque sisters.
