    Christmas recital this year and they were a hit. I love the composers at Alfred!

    I haven't purchased these duets. The music may be wonderful, it is certainly a great collection of composers. I'm disappointed to see that the parts are written as transposing up or down an octave rather than expanding the student's reading outside 2-3 octaves. I would rather...

    not dumb down the reading of duets. Part of playing duets is learning to read two treble or two bass parts. I would love to see these rescored in real pitch.
