12 Progressive Violincello Duets, Book 1 - 2 Scores by J. Reinagle. For 2 cellos. String Duets. Level 1 - Easy. 2 Scores. Published by Moeck Verlag (MM.MK01048).
Joseph Reinagle was born at Portsmouth in England in 1762 and died 1836. The second cello part is no more difficult than the first, it will be found that these duets also adapt themselves very well to group playing. Their gayety and folksonglike character permit them to be both instructive and at the same time musically entertaining. The rather sketchy bowing and fingering indications, in the original edition, were completed by the editor, who also added the dynamics. The tempos of each movement, printed in parenthese, should only be regarded as suggestions. - OH.
