From Haydn to Hindemith, here is a representative cross-section through the history of music for piano duet, including shorter pieces ideal for piano lessons.

Primo and secondo parts are presented in score format rather than next to one another. A text booklet describes the pieces and offers performance suggestions.

An informative preface includes practical tips on seating, pedalling, practicing etc. as well as short information on each piece.

The "Just for Fun" section at the end contains 4 arrangements of popular pieces: The Entertainer; Kalinka, a Russian folk song; What shall we do with the drunken sailor; The house of the rising sun.

"This is an excellent whistle-shop repertoire tour for inquisitive duettists short of spare time." (Music Teacher magazine)

"This is an invaluable work, ideally suited to both individual and group tuition; its mainly short pieces are calculated to bring variety to piano lessons and constitute a fine extension to the repertoire of all who find four-handed playing fun." (Frankfurt Daily)
