Have you always played piano music written
for one person? Have you ever experienced the joy of duo piano (2
players/2 pianos), piano duet (2 players/1 piano), and piano quartet (4
players/2 pianos) compositions? If you are a late intermediate or
advanced piano student and you want to vastly expand your piano horizons then
this is the course for you. The course discovers music written for this medium
from the 18th century to the present and enrolled students should have the
ability to sight read adequately. For the most dedicated among you, the
class experience culminates in a public performance!
The video below features Yuko Isozaki and Alice Izumi performing Samuel
Barber’s “Tango” from his Souvenirs. The
recital included many talented pianists from the Fall 2011 SMC Piano Ensemble
Class coached by Dr. Yulia Krasny.
