Notes & Comments

Cellist Bernhard Romberg (1767-1841) and his cousin violinist Andreas Romberg (1767-1821) were known to write works together. As this title page simply says “Romberg” I believe this Duet is by both. It opens with a sonata form first movement, and the second movement is marked Alla Pollacca. There is another modern edition of this Duet, but not with facsimile included.

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.
