Ostinato Barbaro by Robert D. Vandall. For piano duet. Duet or Duo; Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands). The Alfred Duet Series. Intermediate. Sacred. Intermediate. Single. 11 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.25819).
A raw energy is created musically by hard-driving rhythms, modal sounds and open intervals of fourths, fifths and octaves in this primitive-sounding duet. The rhythmic accents of the primo part shift over the secondo's repeated bass patterns. This piece is not only fun to play, but showy for a talented duet team. 12 pages.
