By Jack Fina / arr. Lucy Wilde Warren
Piano Quartet (2 Pianos, 8 Hands)
2 copies included
Pianist, composer, and bandleader Jack Fina's popular 1946 hit, "Bumble Boogie," is based on Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumble Bee." Lucy Wilde Warren's arrangement for two-pianos, eight-hands is written for late-intermediate pianists and set up as two duets (Piano 1 and Piano 2) with the primo and secondo parts on facing pages. This high-energy audience pleaser is fun to play while providing important listening skills, technique, rhythmic control, and musicianship. "Bumble Boogie" is excellent for recitals, piano ensemble classes, and "monster" concerts. A Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selection.
