    Default Recommendations for piano duet music about grade 5 level

    My daughter is currently in grade 5, the Canadian RCM program. To give you an idea of the level of difficulty, these pieces are part of the repertory:

    Bach Menuet in E from French Suite No.6 BWV 817
    Scarlatti Sonata in D Minor K.34
    Clementi Sonatina in C Op.36


    We want to learn a duet. Recommendations please.

    I've found two promising ones thus far;
    The Arrival of Queen of Sheba and March Militaire.

    Sounds like a great project! Duets are lots of fun to play. A few suggestions at your daughter's level:

    Faure: Kitty Valse from the Dolly Suite


    Mozart: Sonata in C for Piano Duet, K. 521.


    Beethoven: Sonata in D, Op. 6 for Piano Duet

    You can always play some harder piece for solo piano. One plays the LH, the other plays RH.

    Have you chosen a duet piece yet? I'm looking forward to an update. Duets are great fun to play and I hope that you and your daughter are enjoying your practice sessions together!

    Joplin's Entertainer. My daughter and I love this piece and found a good arrangement for 4 hands.

    We had a hard time choosing just one so after the Entertainer, we have a list of 4 or 5 pieces including Beethoven's sonata in D and Schubert's serenade.
