Program Notes

This two-movement piece for solo piano and band is based on two popular classical piano solos: Andante from Concerto No.21 by Mozart and Serenade by Haydn. In addition to featuring a piano soloist this is an opportunity teach classical style and how to play an accompanying role in a concerto setting.

- Program Note from publisher

This arrangement of two great piano works from the Classical period (1750-1820) was created in response to the extraordinary reception the arranger receive to his Baroque Suite for Piano and Band. This is an incredible wealth of piano literature available for all pianists, from the youngest to the most mature. The goal of this setting is to give young pianists the opportunity to express themselves through excerpts from two of these great pieces while playing with band accompaniment.

Though not written at the same time, by the same composer, or for piano and band, both of these works are considered to be standard pieces for the piano and work together well for the combination of piano soloist with band accompaniment.
