NEW! Free MP3 files of all pieces. Piano duets, get ready! Here comes Michael Proksch's A Spaniard for Elise, a collection of twelve exquisite pieces that are an irresistible treat for lovers of four-hand playing. The Spaniard offers something for every level of proficiency. You'll feel blissful In Seventh Heaven and full of joie de vivre on Paris's Pont-Neuf in Seine Scene. You can join Erik Satie, Surprised by the Fresh Country Air and engage in a temperamental dialogue of styles in A Spaniard for Elise. Enhancing the pedagogical value of this singular collection are comments on how to play the pieces, as well as a CD which can not only be listened to and enjoyed, but also used as a play-along version, as it carries individual tracks for the primo and secondo parts

To music and notes sample No. 5 High Spirits
Primo: Staccati with a dynamic, forward drive produced with a nimbly reacting wrist and calm arm. Strongly accentuate the first note at legato slurs. The appoggiaturas can be initially left out. mm. 1-8: Right hand plays alone; mm. 9-16 divided between l.h. and r.h.
Secondo: four-measure-long accompaniment pattern (can also be used as a basis for original melodies!). The fourth beats are stressed through slurred eighths.
