Rachmaninov's composition teacher; famed Russian composer Anton Arensky; wrote these lovely and simple piano duets which run the gamut of emotion in true Russian Romantic style. Stravinsky's wonderful dances round out this charming album with a tongue-in-cheek pair of parts; one extremely easy; the other a dizzying rhythmic joke! Stravinsky loved these three pieces so much that he later orchestrated them as Nos. 1-3 of his Suite No. 2 for small orchestra. A must-have for the less advanced student who wants to play luscious Russian Romantic music!Includes complete printed music score with both primo and secondo piano parts; and a compact disc featuring the duets in two formats: split-channel stereo with secondo part on the left channel; primo on the right; so you can play either part; and then again with just the secondo part in stereo so you can perform the primo part alongside.Performed by Sondra Bianca; pianoAccompaniment: Harriet Wingreen; piano
