The piano quartet repertoire has been made much richer with this stunning Bardeen arrangement. The flavor, the character, and the colors come through as the four pianists weave the parts together. Not technically more difficult than the Inventions, this work will please discriminating performers and audiences.

Brandenberg Concerto #2
A wonderful addition to the 2-pianos-8-hands repertoire. It's challenging and definitely fun to play. We used it as the Postlude after a worship service; nearly everyone stayed to listen!
