Purchase includes score and two cello parts.

August Suck (ca. 1830-1921) pronounced “Sook”, came to the U.S. in the 1850s. With cellist Wulf Fries, he published a cello tutor in 1879, reissued in 1901. In 1881 he became a founding member of the Boston Symphony.  See Music by August Suck for a fuller biography of the composer/cellist.

The Andante and Nocturne came from an archive of Suck manuscripts, which also include a Tarantella for Cello and Piano, 6 Caprices for Solo Cello, a Concerto in D Minor, etc. These 2 duets for 2 cellos are easy/intermediate, rarely going into tenor clef. The parts are equal.
