Four-handed piano, formerly in Sweden called in French à quatre mains, is a playing instruction for a piece of music that requires two players, ie four hands, who play the same piano instrument , usually a piano . Pieces for two pianos are called "for two pianos".

Four-handed piano is a concept in chamber music . During the 19th century, arrangements for four-handed piano became common. What was arranged was orchestral music , solo concerts , overtures and symphonies . In this way, you could play music at home and get in touch with even larger works.

 

Four-handed works are usually easier to play than those for two hands. Many composers made their own arrangements of their orchestral works for four-handed piano, such as Beethoven .

Music for four-handed piano can also be useful in piano lessons.
