The cello duo sheet music repertoire has always been surprisingly small, so we’ve decided to expand it. Our newly created cello duos are based on our violin and cello sheet music arrangements and are intermediate to advanced in standard.
Cello duets are extremely enjoyable to play and can be great fun in lessons, giving the pupil an opportunity to play chamber music with an experienced professional. Many of our arrangements use col legno, pizzicato, double stopping, l.h.pizz or harmonics to enhance the character of the music.Both instruments share the tunes and are evenly matched.
We are now selling eight sheet music cello duets: Charpentier’s Te Deum and Monteverdi’s Chiome d’Oro from the baroque era, the passionate and romantic Toreador Song and Habanera from ‘Carmen’, three folk songs – Lilliburlero, A Lark in the Clear Air and My Love is like a Red, Red Rose – and Jerome Kern’s Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man.
What does this selection have in common? Tunes you will fall in love with which work beautifully on the cello. Most of the duos use tenor clef in places; Lilliburlero has a fair bit of treble but we have included easier versions of this arrangement which remain in bass throughout.
We’ll be adding more cello duos over the next few weeks. As always your feedback is very welcome, so if you have ideas for new cello duo repertoire or would like to let us know what you think, just email at email@example.com
