Piano six hands

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Music described as piano six hands is for three pianists at one piano, as distinct from piano duet which is music for two pianists at one piano, and from piano trio which is music for piano, violin and cello. Not much music has been written for this combination, although there are several arrangements of music originally written for other forces.
