Schumann’s Andante and Variations for Two Pianos Op.46 (1843) requires fluidity and lightness from both piano players as the initial theme they exchange gets more complex.

The extraordinary and rich polyphony of Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins (1717-1723) was adapted for two keyboards in 1736. The central movement yearns for serenity when the two pianos play in the same voice.

Mozart’s joyful and relaxed Concerto for Two Pianos K 365 (1779) expresses his happiness of being back in his family after a stay in Paris. Although the work develops the soloists’ complicity, it is also filled with nostalgia.
