    Hi guys, me and my friend decided to do a Piano duet for school.
    Right now, I'm looking for a good Piano duet that is not too difficult and a great piece to play.
    I have never played Piano duet before :(
    What pieces do you recommend?

    It should not have to be too easy, seeing as you play the Chopin Op.23 !
    You can consider:

    Debussy - Petite Suite
    Faure - Dolly Suite
    Satie - 3 Pieces in the shape of a pear
    Dvorak - Slavonic Dances
    Brahms - Hungarian Dances
    Schubert - Military Marches

    etc.... there is a lot of good piano duet stuff around. Great fun to do :!:

    Would you want a 2-piano piece or 1piano but for four hands? There is a difference. I have about 40 scores (from dances, to sonatas, to virtuoso concertos, and everything in between). By telling me what you are interested in, it will enable for me to write down all what I have in that particular catagorey

    (I hope I made sense)

    What I listed is what I have on CD.

    Schubert- if you are looking for a short piece, then I suggest the "Children's march in G" it's only 2 pages long. Or you can play 4 Landler D.814--this if four pages long, each lander is about 1/2 page, with repeats, so it is not as short as the March in G.

    If those are too short then I have a 52 page piece by Schubert, if you really want it :wink:

    Hey, Schuberts Children's March in G would be fine.
    The reason why I'm asking for a really short piece because the music assessment which me and my friend is taking has to be less than 3 minutes.
    Thanks so much for your help :D
