This equal-level primer reading duet is a great choice for recitals! In both parts, when hands change, they start on landmark notes (Middle C, Bass F or Treble G). The primo part only uses fingers 2, 3, and 4 in each hand, and has an optional passage for both hands at the end. The secondo part uses more fingers, and has a quarter-half-note rhythm in several measures that might challenge some students. Engraved in both “facing pages” and “combined score” styles for maximum flexibility.
Key: C major
