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.
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.
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.
Boismortier Six Duets for 2 Cellos Op. 40 (Ruf)
This is a single book with both parts in score form. All duets are written in bass clef, do not require positions above fourth, and are popular with cellists with similar skill sets. A variety of accessible keys and time signatures within your comfortable note range.
