Transcribed by Friedrich Hermann, edited by Louis Pagels. Published by International
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was the most influential and admired composer of the Romantic Era, and is considered today to be among the greatest composers of classical music to ever live. His music is known variously for its compositional rigor, sublime beauty, organic development, gripping urgency, and life-affirming, universal humanism. He left a significant mark on almost every classical genre he worked in, from string quartets to symphonies.
Beethoven's Three Duets, WoO 27 were very early works, predating his studies with Haydn. Originally written for clarinet and bassoon, they are arranged here in this popular arrangement for violin and viola by Friedrich Hermann. Includes two performance parts (no score). Advanced level, grade 5.
