Both my son and I play piano and we would like to play some duets for 4 hands, 1 piano. He has a lot of music to practice and I don't have much time to practice. We were hoping for something that we could more or less sightread. We have an arrangement for Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm," but it will take some practice by both of us. Suggestions?

We play at about the same level. He plays approximately grade level 8-10 pieces, leaning toward 10. I am more at grade level 8 than 10.

Thanks! FYI, I originally posted this in the Piano forum. Sorry!

the faure dolly suite is very nice and just about perfect.

you'll still some practice to get the most out of it, but i played #1 and #4 at a competition when i was ABRSM grade 5 or something. so they're quite easy.

Dvorak's 4-handed Slavonic Dances are great.
Op 46 No 8 in G minor is a crowd pleaser.

Ravel's Mother Goose Suite. Lovely set and not too difficult.

Brahms Hungarian Dance number 5 is a lot of fun.

Composers manufacture a product that is universally deemed superfluous—at least until their music enters public consciousness, at which point people begin to say that they could not live without it.

I ordered the Debussy and I may get the Brahms or Dvorak. My son is already been working on Ravel. Thanks for the addition of the Mozart to the list! I imagine we will be coming back to this post from time to time to add more music to our repertoire. Thanks so much!!!

This one has always been one of my favourites.

Beethoven wrote a few four hands pieces:
Sonata for Four Hands op.6
March op.45
WoO67, WoO74
and of course the four hands arrangement of the Grosse Fugue(Op134)

Schumann's Bilder aus Osten (Op. 66) is beautiful. It is a set of 6, some are easier than others. Incredibly rewarding to work through.
