This volume contains identical titles from Harmonious Melodies, Volume II For Two Violins, excluding Bach’s Largo. Duet arrangements are included from Bach Two-Part Inventions, Beethoven’s Fur Elise, Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Massenet’s Meditation and also pieces by Corelli, Fiocco and many others.
Written with the intermediate to advanced student in mind, there are 21 familiar, standard pieces arranged with the cello part moving in sync with the violin part, while adhering to harmonies found in piano accompaniments.
Christopher Rex, retired Principal Cellist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, kindly reviewed all the arrangements in this volume. In nine of them, his musical and technical suggestions were so extensive, that he is listed as a co-arranger. Lastly, Mr. Rex was most gracious in writing a very supportive Foreword to this volume.
