This short videoclip was captured by another one of my Saturday afternoon students, who just happened to arrive as Isaac and I were having fun with a piano duet which has proven extremely popular with all my more advanced players - Richard Eilenberg's Petersburger Schlittenfahrt. She recorded it totally off-the-cuff on her Android tablet, once she saw just how much fun we were having! In fact, she couldn't resist responding to the beat - hence the 'camera shake' early on!
It's not the complete piece, and there are certainly a good number of notes which weren't in the original score! However, she felt it said a lot about the way Philip teaches, where the accent on fun is never too far away. Philip has, in fact, produced his own edition of this particular duet.
