Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his Duo For Violin And Violoncello whilst he was still in Bonn, perhaps in 1792, the year he departed for Vienna. It is not known whether he completed his work as only the beginning of a fast sonata movement has survived. It is on a page in a collection of sketch leaves that is today known as the “Kafka Miscellany”. Robert D. Levin has completed this fragment in the same style and thus for the first time it is in a version that can be performed.
This Henle Edition contains two performance scores of the lively showpiece, thus guaranteeing an optimal duo experience. A welcome addition to the repertoire.
