Rondo varie based on a theme by Boieldieu composed by Emmanuel Guerin. Edited by Wolf. String Duets. For Cello, Double Bass. Sheet Music. Published by Zimmermann (PE.ZM31310).
All we know about Emmanuel Guerin is his date of birth: March 3rd, 1779, and that he was a cello player at the Theatre Feydeau in Paris for a quarter of a century. That is where he wrote most of his compositions-all of which use the cello, his instrument, for chamber music works. As there are hardly any compositions for the rare instrumentation cello/double bass, this work is a welcome enrichment. On account of its simple structure, no score was created.
