Twelve Duos, KV 487: No. 1 Allegro (viola cello duo)
Title: Twelve Duos, KV 487: No. 1 Allegro
Composer: W. A. Mozart, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Viola and Cello
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Originally for two horns (or perhaps basset horns), the duets of KV 487 are delightful to play, and they sound great on strings. The two instruments are equal partners throughout. The imitative rhythms in the second half add a bit of sparkle to the two voice texture.
This duet is also available in the Bargain Bundle Mozart, W. A., Twelve Duos KV 487, Set 1 (No. 1 – 4) (viola cello duo).
