Recordings

On this page are audio tracks for 10 pieces from Piano Star Duets, selected from across the volume. For each, we’ve provided a performance track, which includes both parts and shows how the piece goes, together with separate tracks of parts 1 and 2. These provide an opportunity for the pupil to play-along at home and create a duet on their own!

Simply select, for example, a part 2 track and play along with part 1 to make a duet. Some of the pieces have a few extra percussion or instrument parts added to bring out the colour of the music a little more – listen out for these.

Each piece has a two-bar ‘count-in’, given by percussion instruments indicating the beat, before the music starts. The only exception is ‘Chitter Chatter’, which has a four-bar count-in, as the crotchet pulse is quite fast. Note also ‘Jasmine Flower’: because this piece restarts in the middle, there’s a one-bar ‘count-in’ for secondo at this point.

ABRSM’s Speedshifter app can be used to alter the speed of the pieces, for example to find a suitable practice tempo, or even, if you like, to find a quicker tempo to play along to!

We hope you enjoy listening to and playing along with these tracks, and that they enhance your enjoyment of the duets volume.
