Mike Cornick has compiled several excellent sets of arrangements of some of the most popular light music from the last 100+ years, and this latest album offers some delightful romantic music. He invites you to imagine being seated in an intimate, candle-lit restaurant, being serenaded by two pianists at a shiny grand piano: except this time you are one of the pianists!
Mike’s arrangements include a CD that provides for each title, as well as a full, inspirational recording, play-along tracks so that you can take over either the primo or secondo part. When you have mastered them, of course you will be ready to play the pieces live with your partner.
“Dinner for Two” includes five romantic arrangements that will be very familiar: Martini’s “Plaisir d’Amour, Arndt’s “Nola”, “Santa Lucia” (trad.), Marchetti’s “Fascination” and Kern’s “They Didn’t Believe Me”. Intermediate level players will quickly master these arrangements and can then explore similar albums by Cornick, such as “Charleston for Two”, “Pink Panther for Two” and several more collections.
