Here is a brand-new collection of duets aimed at players of equal standard, with the melody often shared between the parts. The pieces cover a broad spectrum of well-known traditional and classical melodies - Für 2 Violinen


Double Act is a new collection of 30 instrumental duets, arranged from popular folk songs, well-known classical melodies, hymns and popular songs, spanning many centuries of music from many countries. As well as the pleasure of playing these duets, the pieces will develop players technique. The melody is shared between the parts, with each carrying the tune and accompaniment, encouraging musical ensemble playing. The jazzier arrangements feature strong syncopation to help develop a sense of rhythm, whilst slower pieces concentrate on timbre and tuning. Short pieces can be repeated swapping over parts for variety. Generally the simpler pieces are found towards the front of the book, with the more challenging ones at the end. The broad spectrum of styles will appeal to players of all ages and abilities from grade 2 upwards, and the familiar tunes will make sight-reading easy and rewarding.
