78 Violin-Viola Duets, BI. 33-110, Vol. 2 (Nos. 5-7, BI. 37-39); Alessandro Rolla
- Urtext. Edited by Kenneth Martinson. Format: Playing score.
Alessandro Rolla (1757-1841) remains one of the most prolific composers of his era, having composed around 45 violin concertos, 22 viola concertos, 131 violin duets, 78 violin-viola duets, and 38 viola duets, trumping by wide margins the output of any composer for all of these genres in all of music history. He also served as the director of La Scala opera and was the founding violin/viola professor at the Milan Conservatory, where he taught Nicolo Paganini. Rolla influenced not only his playing, but his own virtuosic violin writing. These violin-viola duets were probably used in lessons with his students and show the influence of Mozart.
