    I play duets several times a season for various christmas events and seem to always include this duet. It sounds impressive and is always a crowd pleaser. While technically not hard I do agree with some of the other reviews. You do need to practice the timing.

    My friend and I had to get something quick for Christmas, and I found this. It is a lot of fun. We didn't have to work on it very long (it's not very hard, I could sight read right through it!) When we played it we got so...

    many compliments! It sounds wonderful and dramatic! I love the finish! I would really recommend this piece!

    This is a fun-tastic little selection that works well in a variety of settings - We've used it in church services and piano recitals. Although not overly difficult, you certainly need to have all your wits about you in terms of timing in a few places, and the person...

    playing the upper registers has to deal with several passages that use a lot of ledger lines & 8va. The dynamics are lovely, as is the rhythym, momentum and harmony - and it all comes together with a dramatic finish. This arrangement would be worth every penny at three times the price - I definitely recommend it.

    Vandall duet shares the melody between both pianists -- although the piece isn't technically difficult, it sounds challenging to an entertained audience.
