Violin Cello duets
Recommendations for cello and violin duets and where to find music?
Daughter particularly drawn to Piazzola- but open.
"Doing" Mendelssohn, some Paganini in her solo rep..
The "Beethoven" Duos that were written originally for clarinet and bassoon are lovely. They're not Mendelssohn level, but they're not trivial and they're fun. My daughter and I have played through them a few times, but I would not say that we've "done" them.
Paul, doesn't need to be a challenge difficulty wise....
Matthew, same rep here. Daughter's teacher wants us to find a cellist who can handle Ravel cello-violin sonatas who's around her age.
There are works by Kodaly
Kiki, for viola and cello, check out husband and wife Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth playing Beethoven:
Oddly enough, there isn't as much good rep for this combination as you might think. It seems obvious, and yet composers didn't do much with it.
Stan, thank you for the link. You can really hear the dialogue in the music.
Thank you all.
Bach inventions work best for 2 violins or violin/viola, but could probably translate to violin/cello pretty well.
...all except the best piece of all - Ravel's stunning Sonata for Violin and Cello
