Rentmeister Easy Duets I (2 cellos)
32 short duos in first position. Both parts are in a single book, score form.
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.
Giordani – 6 Duos, Op. 4 (2 cellos)
This single booklet includes both parts in score form. Parts are of similar difficulty, and both have a mix of tenor and bass clef. However, the tenor clef often stays within 4th position. If you associate clef changes with notes above your comfort zone, if you can handle through A harmonic up to a possible B, don’t shy away from these.
Breval Sonata in G Major with continuo
Includes basso continuo part
Wang – Chinese Folk Songs Vol. 1
These pieces can be played whether you are 2 cellos, 3 cellos or 4 cellos. Cello 1 requires knowledge of tenor clef and thumb position. Cello II is the most challenging as it has more shifting in neck positions. Cellos III and IV may be played by less experienced players. Contents: Fall Recollections at Dressing Table, Whether He Knows or Not, Little Cabbage, General’s Command, Jiaocheng Mountain, Elunchun Folk Tune.
