America the Beautiful Duet Fantasy

By Robert D. Vandall

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/america-the-beautiful-duet-fantasy-sheet-music/5434852

Piano - Early Intermediate
Composed by Robert D. Vandall. Duet or Duo; Piano Duet (1 Piano, 4 Hands). Duet Fantasy. Patriotic. Sheet. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.881365).

Item Number: AP.881365

This is a dramatic arrangement of epic proportions that will warm the hearts of performers and audiences. Mr. Vandall takes this relatively simple melody through a variety of harmonizations and keys. First stating the theme in B-flat Major, he then tosses the melody to the secondo in G Major. The primo dramatically takes the melody back before concluding the piece in E Major. Lyrical and expressive writing. Introduction and concluding coda for a colorful sunrise and sunset to the piece. Patriotic or Americana theme recitals perfect for Independence Day celebration or any time of year. 4/4 meter.

    As a pianist and veteran piano teacher, I have to say that Robert Vandall's work is a breath of clean, fresh air, and this arrangement is no exception! It has variety, majesty, shifts in key signatures, and great balance between the parts. It is most definitely not just "another...

    " predictable arrangement of a patriotic standard. It is unique, appealing and satisfying to the performer and the listener, and would dramatically cap any recital or other musical social gathering!

    I 'm not impressed at all. "America the Beautiful" so amazing music, it should sounds a lot better as a duet. This version was the worse I ever heard in my life.
