Want to Learn a Christmas Duet?

sleigh-ride

I have loved this version of Sleigh Ride since I first saw it on YouTube:

When I found out it was available in sheet music, I rushed to amazon to buy several copies for myself, my son, my friend, basically, everyone I thought could play it.

Lots of fun to play and to hear.

Amazon says:

Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” is a holiday favorite, and this setting for advanced piano duet gives it a fresh twist. It begins with Anderson’s jingling melody and some musical “banter” between the Primo and Secondo players, and then it launches into a series of variations which take the listener on a journey through a variety of styles—from gently swirling, impressionistic arpeggios to a triumphant coda with brilliant, virtuosic passagework. Audiences will enjoy a number of other musical surprises along the way.

If you want to borrow it, let me know early because someone at the studio may already be playing it!
