    A bit of old-fashioned 4-hand salon fun. This Op.57 by prolific but forgotten composer Richard Eilenberg is alternatively called Petersburger Schlittenfahrt (Petersburger Sleigh Ride), En Trainau, and/or Souvenir de St.Petersbourg - Galop. I used to play this with my teacher as a kid. After many years of sniffing at this kind of repertoire, I feel drawn to it again. Maybe it's just nostalgia....

    I recorded this with myself. The primo part proved surprisingly recalcitrant with all its unisono writing. Despite some less than optional synchronization in a couple of spots this came out well I think. Enjoy (or turn away in disgust :wink: )

    Eilenberg - Petersburger Schlittenfahrt Op. 57 ( 3:01 )

    Enjoyed, but more your nimble playing than the garish music.

    Barkeep! Your finest sarsaparilla, on the double!

    Gents, what's wrong with this type of music in moderation? Chris, I enjoyed listening to you play with yourself. :lol: (Sorry, Nathan Coleman if I stole your thunder)

    I listened and enjoyed it (by the way I sometimes listened to your piano playing from the website, while reading the piano score).

    I' m curious to have some more info about the period of the composer.

    Never heard of the composer, but sounds like a fun piece to play with someone.

    Yeah that would be preferable. Maybe I should advertise for a 4-hand buddy.
    But playing with myself is fun too :lol:

    For those who can read German, there's this website : http://www.eilenberg.eu/
    Wikipedia also has a page about him.
