  • January 14, 2012 Béla Bartók, 44 Duets (2 vols.)

    As a rule sheet music for 2 or more instruments (i.e., chamber music) comes as a set of parts. I was disappointed that this 2-volume item turned out not to include a second copy.

  • December 10, 2008 A unique and pleasant collection!

    Bartok's work is in many ways bizarre, but represents a genre of music too often overlooked. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in somewhat bohemian pieces and a love of duets!
