As a prelude to my forthcoming set of piano duets for late elementary/early intermediate players, today’s Friday competition is actually a freebie. I’m hoping the new duets will be published in September and my challenge has been to write very short pieces (8-10 bars) for those of Grades 2-4 standard. It’s amazing just how tricky it is to say something musically interesting (hopefully) in just 8 bars!
Andante is a tuneful duet for students (or anyone) of around Grade 3 level. Built on the Minimalist idea, I hope it’s fun and convenient to play. It could also be useful sight-reading material for those of a slightly higher level too.
