Lalo Concerto in D minor 2 cellos
#3741 For solo cello with 2nd cello part by Daniel Morganstern instead of the usual piano reduction. Also includes commentary and preparatory exercises.
Bartok 18 Duos (2 cellos)
From 44 Duos for 2 Violins arranged for 2 violoncelli by Walter Kurz. At first blush the pieces appear deceptively simple. Most of the duets can be played with a working knowledge of first and second positions. However, phrasing, dynamic markings, changes in time signature, and complex rhythms quickly reveal much more intricate music happening here. While parts appear evenly matched, it will be helpful to play with a more advanced partner. Newer students will have questions. Highly recommended because of the broad scope of skills required and, after all, it is Bartok! The 18 pieces are short, absolutely loaded with material.
de Fesch Sonata C Major, Op. 8-4 (2 cellos)
Written for cello and bassoon, both parts in score form in one booklet. Can be played by two cellos, or cello with piano accompaniment. Cello I is largely in tenor clef, but the note range does not exceed 4th position G. Continuo in bass clef, easier rhythmically.
Dotzauer Three Easy Duos Op. 114 (2 cellos)
#3780 Edited by Jeffrey Solow. Each part is in its own book. Don’t confuse “easy” with “for beginners.” Range stays within bass clef, 4th position, but includes more complex rhythms, lots of double stops that are not against open strings, sections in 3 sharps and flats. No idea why this volume is so expensive, but it does include a lot of music! I find this to be fun and practical sight-reading material as the range of notes is comfortable, but the intervals and rhythms really show you where your geography shortcomings lie.
