What is a piano duo?

The title piano duo can mean two pianists playing at one piano (often referred to as 'piano four hands', or 'piano duet'); or two people playing at two pianos (commonly labelled 'piano duo', 'two pianos' or 'two piano four hands').  There is also the related double piano duet: 'two pianos eight hands'.  Each scenario has unique joys and ensemble challenges.
