Composed in 1880 for piano duet, these four charming dances make a delightful addition to any concert. In four movements, the first and last of which are more extended compositions featuring varied tempi and moods; fast semiquaver sections alternating with slower sections of lush harmony. The fourth movement in particular gets faster and faster ending with an exciting Prestissimo section. The second and third movements are simpler, but no less attractive. All instruments have interesting but playable parts, with varying standards from approximately grade 4 upwards
