No doubt that, the work is excellent as it is now.
It is just that we (with my brother) are planning a piano duo concert this year, hence the question.

Wouldn't any 4-hand piece also work on 2 pianos? Like Ravel's Rapsodie Espagnole or La Valse?

Oh dear... Hakki...

Now you've got me thinking for two pianos... (honestly).

When would you like the score at most? EDIT: I mean if I was to compose something specific for you and your brother... wink

(on another side, what OSK says is perfectly true. It'd work fine, due to its very full sound I think... Or play on a single piano, for this particular work (showing how much you love it, and me as well, blah blah... grin)

Nikolas,

It would be too daring to ask for a specific version for us. wink
(we are two amateur pianists)

On a second thought (and since you, the composer, say it is fine) we can try certain stories on two pianos as written.
(the recital is due in late April/early May, date not specified yet)

Thank you for the insight.

Really?!?! That's surprising...

In any case I'd be obliged if you could get me in touch and I'll deal with the rest... Cause I don't actually have too much access to uni libraries right now (just a couple that I've used in the past and know the people in the inside).

BTW, to all:

Someone in the teachers forum said that it would be a good idea to have sample pages of the scores.

If you visit the link of the work here: http://www.musica-ferrum.com/catalog/viewitem.php?show=47 and click on 'preview' there's five (5) pages for preview purposes.

Just in case it's not clear... smile

Thanks everyone!


Congratulations! Also, that is definitely the prettiest score I've seen in a while.

Aawww... Thank you teenagepiano!

It's true that I love music scores and find them to be a completely new form of art (more or less anyhow)... Even without the illustrations some scores simply look fantastic! But in this case I will add that Piero's work has done miracles, once more! smile
