String Duos - Violin and Cello

The duet repertoire for violin and cello is fairly extensive if one counts all of the continuo sonatas of the baroque, but after the eighteenth century the string quartet became the string ensemble of choice for many composers. This category includes music of a wide range of genres and styles, from Renaissance to ragtime. It includes many arrangements by romantic era composers like Grieg, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Schumann.
