Latin for Two
Bernd Frank, professor of jazz piano and music theory at the Mainz Musikhochschule, wrote these easy pieces (of which there are eight) for piano duet for beginner's lessons. As in Diabelli's famous 'Melodious Exercises', the primo player plays within the pentatonic scale. This nevertheless led to the creation of rhythmically and melodiously interesting pieces – with interesting harmonies, fascinating Latin rhythms and song-like melodies. The accompanying CD contains both full versions and play-along versions of all pieces – for playing along at home.
