This is a great book that includes a mix of classical and some well known popular numbers such as Turkey in the Straw. The English folksong, Country Gardens, has a great arrangement and is fun to play. (I didn't know the song by that name, but it will be recognized by almost everyone after one measure!) My cousin and I are both delighted and can't believe we found such a great collection in one book. We definitely recommend it.

At Long Last!
My aunt and I played from this same anthology 50+ years ago; my copy was missing the last page of the Poet and the Peasant Overture and everything after it. The pages were falling out, and I was afraid to use it (having finally finding a Secundo partner with whom to play after all these years). But -- YOU HAD THE BOOK! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Good duet collection
This collection brings together a number of well-known and favorite pieces in 4-hand arrangements. The pieces are fun to play. Intermediate to early advanced seems about right for the level. My main complaint with this collection is the quality of the printing. Some pages are very light. Some pages have random blotches that cover some of the notes so that you have to guess what is supposed to be played.

Good selection of songs!
My daughter and I are enjoying the Piano duets. There is a good range of difficulty in the book.

This is a lot of fun with a wide selection of pieces. It has the classics as well as not so familiar ones too.

This book is full of interesting, diverse styles and provides an excellent staple of favorites for duet players. The only drawback is that the intent - four-hand one piano vs. two pianos- is not clearly delineated; the cover art depicts 2 pianos, but the pieces can be played on one piano. Either way you play, very enjoyable!
