J. S. Bach's two-part keyboard pieces form a significant body of musical literature, but only occasionally have they been arranged for strings. This carefully transcribed collection of violin duets and its two companion volumes, Duets for Two Violas (MB # 21438) and Duets for Two Cellos (MB #21439), bring many additions, taken from Bach's suites, preludes, and inventions, to the string player's repertoire. Intermediate and advanced instrumentalists will delight in the musical complexity, contrapuntal dialogue, and variety of moods in these pieces.

Since bowing and fingering preferences vary greatly among string players, editorial marks have been kept to a minimum. These arrangements are an attractive, valuable addition to string ensemble work.
