The Carl Fischer Progressive Duets for Strings is a comprehensive publication of two volumes of graded duets that have been arranged or composed by Larry Clark and Doris Gazda. Larry and Doris have drawn on their extensive experience as school music teachers and prominent composer/arrangers to create a collection of duets that will be useful in a variety of performance situations. Playing duets is an excellent way for the student to build ensemble skills with a colleague or teacher. It is published for violin, viola, cello and bass, and is arranged so that it can be performed by any two of these string instruments, making the collection a valuable tool in the school classroom as well. It is a collection that is long overdue.
Throughout the long history of string-instrument instruction, teachers have discovered the tremendous benefits of encouraging students to play in chamber-music groups. The simplest form of chamber music is the duet. Duets provide students with the opportunity to study music that can be played with other students or with their teacher. While developing the ensemble skills required for duet performance, students can also be working on technique, intonation, and tone quality. In addition, duets are an excellent form of music for practicing sight-reading skills. Classical composers wrote a tremendous volume of chamber music that was probably used for evening gatherings of friends and musicians. String literature and study material are rich in duets written by the great composers and master teachers of the last 200 years. In recent years, teachers and arrangers have compiled collections of these duets in an effort to make a varied selection of music available to students. This new collection of duets for strings brings together some new arrangements from the classical repertoire along with established duets, as well as some new compositions that will provide hours of musical enjoyment. It is published for violin, viola, cello and string bass and is arranged so that it can be performed by any two of these string instruments. The duets are placed in the book in order of difficulty and cover a range of keys. Special care was taken to make sure that both of the duet parts are on a similar ability level and that each line is given an opportunity to play a lead role at some point during the arrangement. Also, all musical markings are attached to both systems, and the point size of the music was considered for ease of reading. It was a pleasure for us to have the opportunity to put together this collection. We hope it will help to stimulate and enhance the musicianship of the performers, and will provide pleasure as you use it in the years to come.
