BeethovenÕs two duos were originally written for Clarinet and Cello, but are often performed with Bassoon. They were published without an opus and were probably intended as gifts for friends or to be performed at a private chamber music soire?. Mr. SauerÕs arrangements are delightful to play. Duos 1 & 2 have three movements; the first in the traditional Sonata form, the second a Òslow movementÓ Larghetto and third movement a zippy Rondo. Duo 3 begins with a first movement Allegro and the second movement is an Aria with Variations, having a quick Ògigue-likeÓ Allegro tacked on to the end. These duos may be performed by Tenor and Bass Trombone or 2 Tenors, with the 2nd part needing an f-attachment to reach down for some DÕs and CÕs. The first parts are all in Tenor clef and these three works are of moderate difficulty.
