By the time Mozart was touring with his sister, Nannerle, in 1776, four-handed playing on a harpsichord had become a performer's stunt. It becomes a serious musical form with Charles Burney's Four Sonatas or Duets on One Pianoforte or Harpsichord (1777 - 78).

Duet-playing rapidly became a common drawing-room recreation. One of the immediate results of the popularity of four-handed playing was extending the keyboard of the piano to its modern size - four hands could exploit a wider melodic range than two, and there was more room for two players at a longer keyboard.

There is, also, much evidence that piano duets were a perfectly respectable way of courting. The performances on this recording was originally broadcast by CBC Stereo 103.3 Ottawa, on the programme, Artscape.
