In 1839 Friedrich August Kummer (1797-1879) wrote Violoncelloschule fur den ersten Unterricht (Violoncello School for Preliminary Instruction), Op. 60. The method has remained a staple of teaching literature ever since. As an appendix to this work, Kummer composed several duets of increasing difficulty that can be paired with the topics and exercises learned in the lessons. As cello technique changed during the nineteenth century, several cellists (Friedrich Dotzauer, Bernhard Romberg, and Leo Schulty) added other duets bringing the total to 110. Selected Pupil/Teacher Cello Duets contains the first 85 collected in the 1900 Schirmer edition of these etudes, extracted to be used in lessons to enforce technical and musical issues as they arise.
