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.
Vivaldi Concerto in G Minor for 2 cellos arr. for 5 cellos

Beethoven Trio in C, Op. 87 (3 cellos)
[IMC #2227] Originally composed for two oboes and English horn. Cello I is entirely in tenor clef and requires thumb position; Cello II is in bass clef moving briefly above 4th position for a B; Cello III barely moves out of first position to an occasional E. There are many octave jumps in the lower positions, many ungainly passages.
