The Anderson & Roe Duos & Duets series features inspiring arrangements as performed by the duo---from settings of treasured opera melodies to medleys of popular movie music. The pieces are edited with fingering and other directions that facilitate rehearsal and performance, making them accessible for advancing students as well as for concert performers.
Johann Sebastian Bach's St. Matthew Passion, considered one of the monuments of music literature, is filled with multidimensional levels of symbolism, theological understanding, and psychological insight. In this awe-inspiring arrangement for two pianos, four hands, five movements from the original work have been carefully selected. Together they retain the dramatic arch of the story, but pare the music down to a more manageable duration suitable for performance on recitals. Two copies required.
