Johann Georg Christoph Schetky (1737-1824) grew up at the court of Hessen-Darmstadt where his father was in service to the landgrave Ludwig VIII as a musician and secretary. Schetky studied composition with Samuel Endler and cello with Anton Filtz. Later, he played the cello in the Darmstadt Court Orchestra, and from 1768 he gave concerts as a freelance cellist, at first in Hamburg and from 1772 in London. In 1774 he became principal cellist of the Edinburgh Musical Society and married the daughter of the Austrian cellist Joseph Reinagle (1762-1836). The cello duets op. 7 were written for teaching purposes and first published in 1780. The duets are extremely suitable for tuition. There are rewarding exercises for both players - tailor-made for the instrument.

    I first saw a movement of one of these on youtube and decided to get them. I've started teaching them to my students and they greatly enjoy playing them. They require lots of shifting and are a great way to learn how to get ones hand up and down...

    the fingerboard. Even a little reading of tenor clef is found in these duets. Nice melodies for sure. Both players get rewarding parts. Schetky wrote them for tuition purposes, and I certainly recommend these duets.
