For solo cello, theme with five variations and coda. Theme stays within first position note range, with fingered double stops. Two variations include a 4th position G, three variations include double stops. It’s manageable with room to grow!
One of our favorite duo collections. Many double stops with one open string makes two cellos sound like four, and the music is just fun. Optional pocket score is available $6.00, useful if your duo is being coached.
The duets progress in difficulty, with parts being equal. Duet 1 is primarily half notes in 1st position, a few moving quarter notes. By Duet No. 7 eighth notes are incorporated, mixing of pizzicato with arco, and some double stops. By the end of the book there are dotted rhythms, some syncopation, always in the 1st position. Written in score form, both parts on the same page.
