Playlist for 23rd October 2911 – Music for Four Hands

Written by on October 22, 2011

 Music for Four Hands – Part one of what will end up as a three part show for music for four hands,  that is music for 2 pianos or 2 pianists at the same piano.  When I first thought of this theme I thought I’d manage to get a respectable single show out of the theme, but in researching more, I’ve discovered a wealth of good music for 2 pianos, both instrumental and orchestral that warrants more than a single show so I’m divvying up the material into 3 with this week being instrumental music up to 1900 and 2 further shows that will cover instrumental music for 2 pianos in the 20th century and orchestral music for 2 pianos.
