Carmen is a multi-movement work, and this arrangement provides all the lustre from the original orchestral score equally shared by the two pianists, creating a most exciting performance piece. Movements may be performed separately, thus making it a bit more simple to learn, or it may be performed in its entirety. Sure to be a big hit with two-piano teams. A Federation Festivals 2016-2020 selection.

    This is a very nice 2-piano arrangement for advanced pianists. Well done and it still sounds like Bizet! Good arrangement.

  • May 22, 2009 Not the most comfortable arrangement ...

    The arrangements sound quite nice, but there are a number of sections that are just not comfortable on the piano. I performed this with a couple of different people (all of us have Master's degrees in piano performance), and it just wasn't that comfortable for any of us...

    . That didn't stop us from performing it ... but it's not really a great arrangement. It's cute, though, and some of the movements are very easy to play. Ensemble-wise, some of the faster movements are a bit tricky, but do-able.

  • July 27, 2007 Superb

    Wonderful arrangements of old, familiar music. Simm gives nearly equal degree of difficulty to the two pianos.

  • October 08, 2003 Neat!

    This arrangement is very fun to play. A good start for an advanced student wanting to bring two piano pieces into his/her repertoire.
