    Difficulty Level:
  • May 08, 2019 Great transcription

    This is a wonderful piece of music transcribed for four hands (moderate difficulty). Like other Durand editions of French music I've purchased, my only criticisms are the small print and lack of fingerings. There are some very awkward page turns in this edition also.

    This duet is a lot of fun to play. The pieces each have a different theme, and the Finale closes it all out with a bang. Great recital piece for duet.

    Each piece in the Carnival has a different character, and requires a different technique. As a duet, it is a lot of fun.
