Ballet from Orphee et Eurydice
(1 Piano 4 Hands)
Christoph Willibald Gluck/arr. Greg Anderson
- Alfred Music Publishing
Ballet from Orfee et Eurydice is an enchanting masterpiece. Composed by early-Classical composer Christoph Willibald Gluck, its haunting melody reflects on the tragic Greek myth of Orpheus and his failed attempt to bring his wife Eurydice back from the dead. The slow, lyrical arrangement for one piano, four hands, requires careful balance between the primo and secondo parts, as well as delicate choreography between the players' hands. The duo of Anderson and Roe have taken audiences by storm and are perhaps the most exciting young piano duo performing today. They have included performance notes and tips for easier comprehension of the arrangement.
