ABRSM Syllabus title, Grade 5 The original source of these sonatas for cello and double bass duo was a collection created by G.A. Perti and his pupils in Bologna around 1695. Among the easy and small-scale movements (at most 28 measures long), the most quintessential dances of the Baroque era are represented.Some of these compositions can be played after a mere 3 years of instrumental study, therefore music students can use them as an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of baroque style. The simple development of the continuo allows for it to be played by a pupil performing alongside their teacher. The pieces also sound great when played on two cellos.

    This is a collection of nine absolutely beautiful short baroque sonatas from some famous and some less well-known Italian composers. The pieces are short but have a lot of charm and color. The presentation is very clear, typical of Editio Musica Budapest sheet music. My nine year old loves...

    to play the score and I play the basso continuo. It is a pure joy to play these pieces on two cellos. I highly recommend playing them as preparation pieces for Marcello and Vivaldi sonatas.
