This elementary keyboard quartet was specifically designed for consumer-grade keyboards, but can also be performed on two pianos. Students will get experience in ensemble playing as well as a touch of basic orchestration as they are encouraged to experiment with the sounds. The second keyboard part is loosely based off of the fifth exercise in Carl Czerny’s The Little Pianist, Op. 823. The whole arrangement is elegant and will sound impressive for recitals. Individual parts and a full score are included.
Key: C Major
Mood: stately, elegant, refined
