This irresistible collection of piano duets is a further one in the popular Tea for Two series. Along with The Pink Panther Theme is: Bill Bailey, Won't you Please Come Home?, The House of the Rising Sun, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho - all skilfully arranged by Mike Cornick. The resulting collection varies from the playful to the more reflective. The CD includes the complete performance of each duet and, if a duet partner is unavailable, for simply rehearsing, separately recorded primo and secondo tracks are provided.
Mike Cornick's books are very good duet arrangements - usually quite jazzy sounding and lively to play - this book is no exception. Standard around grade 4-5 level to be able to play them fluently - and at speed. The CD is great to play along to - and good for ensuring that you keep time when learning. I bought this book for myself and have enjoyed playing the duets both with the CD and with family - I then decided to buy another copy for some of my extended family to play - good duets for parents and children to have some fun with especially Pink Panther.
