Write a Review of Piano Times Two!

This is a program I have put together of some of the nicest 4-hand piano music written for both two pianos and one piano four hands.

For many years my wife and I played duets on the piano. We had two pianos so we could do some of the most beautiful piano music around.

Here’s an example

Pineapple Rag

I have prepared an hour long program of some of the more beautiful pieces we played. I added the second piano part by using a sophisticated software called LogicX Pro so I can be accompanied by the computer while I perform.

Performed at Pine Run Retirement Center

Even if you don’t have a piano, it is possible to have this performance at your facility. I have obtained extremely realistic piano sounds to use which are difficult to tell from the real thing. (The examples here use these)

Here is a recent addition to the repertoire for this concert.

It’s called Braziliera by Milhaud.

I have the equipment which is portable enough to carry to your community. Therefore, even places without a piano can take advantage of this concert.

Equipment: Apple MacBook Pro and iPad, Focusrite digital/MIDI interface, monitor, keyboard controller, two speakers (not shown)

The concert is an hour long. I am willing to work with most budgets. If you would like to book the program, please contact me at michael@virtualpianist.com or call 610-216-4131.
