Notes & Comments

4 Celli.  A fun arrangement of this march in 6/8 time.  The top 2  parts are difficult, in treble clef, and the lower 2 parts are intermediate but still with the tune at times.  I tried to imitate the sound of a cymbal crash with a chord in harmonics near the beginning, and a bass drum beat in the middle with all players stomping on the stage.

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.
