Dotzauer: Op. 44, No. 3, Duo Concertant in B Minor for Two Violins (ca. 1822)
Purchase includes score and two violin parts.
J. J. F. Dotzauer (1783-1860) was a celebrated cellist and composer.
He is best known today for his etudes and solo compositions for cello, but he also wrote numerous chamber works, concerti, and solo works for many other instruments. The three Duos Concertants of Opus 44 were published ca. 1822 and never reissued.
No. 3 in B Minor is a virtuoso work for two equal players. The first and third movements are in sonata form and the second movement is a Romance.
This piece can be purchased as part of a three-pack of Dotzauer editions. Click here to learn more.

Rare 18th and 19th Century Chamber Music including the Cello
In the late 1970s I acquired two bound volumes of duos for violin and cello. As a cellist, I was attracted to them since they were “duos concertante”, with the cello part equal to the violin part. There were 58 duos, with all the violin parts bound in one volume, and all the cello parts in the other.
I am offering many (but not all) of these duos in both facsimiles of the original (no scores were printed) and new performing editions by myself with scores and parts done on Finale. These editions will attempt to correct errors, resolve inconsistencies in dynamics, articulations, bowings, etc. However I will not supply such markings where there is no reason to do so, leaving that to the whim of the performers.
