Dave Brubeck: They All Sang Yankee Doodle (Two Pianos)

Books | Two Pianos

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Dave Brubeck
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Yankee Doodle with variations is the most concise way to describe the piece commissioned by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra to commemorate Connecticut's participation in The United States Bicentennial.

Yankee Doodle, a tune dating back to the Middle Ages in Holland and England (and used by the British as early as 1755 to poke fun at untrained American troops in the French and Indian War) is interwoven with other folk and national melodies to stitch a patchwork or musical collage. It is a personal view of American history.
Please note: two scores needed to perform.

          Spectacular and imaginative - a real finale! Very tricky in places, but difficulty is evenly split between each Piano. Well worth the effort of learning and would be a good (lighter) finale in any concert.
