Looking for specific Mazas duet

Edited: November 23, 2018, 3:51 AM · Hi,

I have a question for those of you who regularly play violin duet repertoire. I am looking for a Mazas duet that I played c. 30 years ago but never managed to get out of my ears.

It’s in G, 4/4, and starts as harmless as they come, but ends in a Rossini-like finale frenzy. I try do give a sufficient description. A semicolon means a bar line.

Beginning, primo: dotted half note d', quarter note g'; quarter note b', half note b', quarter note d"; slurs to quarter note e', half note e', quarter note g'; quarter note c' ...

Beginning, secondo: Spiccato eighth notes, alternating b-g; same, d'-g; same, c'-g; same, e'-g ... You get the idea.

The piece is incredible fun. Pleas help me tracking it down!

Thanks in advance,
all best,

or maybe the 3rd one in here?


I was playing some of these with my father 75 years ago. What a fond memory. Thanks for that
