Duet in F Major (viola duo)


Title: Duet in F Major

Composer: C. P. E. Bach, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Two Violas

Printout: 6 pages

Note: C. P. E. Bach was much admired by Mozart, Haydn, and Brahms for his expressive style. He was major proponent of the “emfindsamer Stil” (sensitive style) which sought to express a wide range of moods within a single movement. This duet, originally for clarinets in C, is characteristic of his style, with a highly evoctive first movement followed by a spirited allegro full of playful cat-and-mouse figures. It has tremendous listener appeal and is suitable for concert as well as gig use.

The audio sample includes the beginnings of both movements.
