Pianists and audiences alike will find these imaginative duets immediately appealing.

With Poulenc-like playfulness, 3+3+4 combines groups of eighth notes in a rhythmically unconventional way. Players will revel in its wry humor and bright, outgoing manner. Timing: 1:47.

A waltz with a 5/8 time signature? Yes! Pentatempo Waltz trips the light fantastic, sweeping across the ballroom with elegance and grace. What a delight to perform in this meter! Timing: 2:54.

Two-Timing plays with the similarities and differences between 6/8 and 3/4, with the music shifting between the two meters flexibly and often. Most often the two parts have the same meter, but in a few instances the players must pit 6/8 against 3/4 simultaneously, creating a real situation of “two-timing.” Timing: 1:31.

This collection makes outstanding recital fare or studio ensemble pieces for intermediate-level pianists with the requisite technical skills and musical imagination.

    This is fun - not too easy, but not very difficult. Interesting rhythms. I bought all of Sondra Clark's duets and they are all enjoyable. Would be a good teacher/student work.
