A short while ago I added a second piano part to Mozart's Rondo alla turca to give it a distinct 'samba' feel. Most young pianists have probably played Mozart's original piece, as well as C P E Bach's Solfeggietto, on which I've based this piece, again for two pianos. The first part is Bach's original, with just a little bit tacked on at the end. In writing a second piano part to accompany this, I had in mind a walking bass line, with a little piano jazz over the top.
However, the listener might notice that the second part is being played by father, Johann, who can't resist slipping in a couple of snatches from his own works along the way! As with the Mozart, purists may disregard the second piano, and just play the top part between the square brackets!
I'm delighted to be able to attach an MP3 file of the piece by Maja and Goran Brkovic, from Uzice, Serbia and Montenegro. Maja and Goran, (see photo) are both pianists and teachers, and have now become good friends through my association with teachers in Belgrade. The playing is simply stunning, and Maja and Goran will kindly be recording more of my piano duets, and works for two pianos.
Many thanks, Goran and Maja!
