Eley: Duett for Violin and Cello, Op. 1, No. 1, in E-flat Major
C. F. Eley (1756-1832) was born in Hanover and active in London after 1785. The 3 Duetts for Violin and Cello Op. 1 were published in 1790. Duett No. 1 in E-flat Major opens with a sonata form movement, has an Adagio slow movement and a spritely Rondo third movement.

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.
