Notes & Comments

Karl Siegmund Schönebeck (1758 - ?) was active in Leipzig and wrote several concerti, operas, and Three Duetts for Violin and Cello, Op. 8, ca. 1800. This Duett No. 2 has only two movements: both are sonata form, and the second is marked Presto. 

This piece can be purchased as part of a three-pack of related Schönebeck 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.
