This flowing, lyrical duet was written with the secondo part just a couple of levels harder than the primo part, so Carefree Summer Day is ideal for siblings. The secondo parts has moving eighth note passages, while the primo part has a few extensions and fancy fingering from a traditional 5-finger position. Whether you are celebrating summer, or wishing summer were here, this duet is a fun piece for recitals.
The duet is engraved in both “facing pages” style (secondo on left page, primo on right page) and as a combined score for maximum flexibility.
