For two violins, intermediate. Notes from Scott Slapin:
A piece that can be played either by violin duo or viola duo, I quoted bits of several Kreutzer etudes and wrote melodies above and around them. Kreutzer is the most standard book of etudes for upper string players, and though some of it is dry, mechanical exercises, much of it is quite musical. Today Kreutzer is most remembered for his etudes and as being the second dedicatee of Beethoven's "Kreutzer Sonata", but he was actually quite a prolific composer, having written 40 operas and 19 violin concertos, among other works. Many students hate Kreutzer, because some of the etudes are deliberately quite awkward, but as you grow up, you keep coming back to them to work on, both with students, and to keep your own playing in shape. So, this is my ode to the great violin professor of the Paris Conservatory, Rodolphe Kreutzer.
