The Bach four duets are great pieces, that hardly anyone plays. I played them years ago.

Bach's 4 Duets
Reply #13 on: August 05, 2003, 08:47:33 PM
I also played them in a Bach competition 2 years ago,and actually I was the only one who picked them then. After the competition,there were master classes for participants and I played them again, and the professor couldn't read them hands together -I assume they were not in his repertoire, it was a little embarrasing for him-
