    Question Cello and violin duet; Cello Melody

    Hello, I am a small time violin player, and currently finding music to play with my Cello friend. She wants to be the melody for once, yet I am unable to find anything on it. Are there any duets for both the violin & cello through which the cello has melody in 50%+ of the piece?

    Well, you may try on VSM:

    But of course most of the duets give the theme to the violin, that's pretty normal... depending by your level, I can recommend the following ones where the cello plays a more interesting part:


    - Halvorsen's Passacaglia for violin and cello

    - Telemann's Canonic Sonatas for violin and cello (both instruments play exactly the same part in canon)

    - Bach's Two Part inventions for violin and cello (both parts alternate the theme most of the times)

    - Handel's Arioso for violin and cello (both parts alternate the theme most of the times)


    And you can have a look at all other transcriptions we have over there, maybe you can find exactly what you are looking for.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for the reply vsm!

    I looked at those, and she wants a faster piece (moderately fast and somewhat easy/intermediate, like Bach Suites).
    Do you know any faster pieces where the cello has the changing main melody rather than the violins?

    I'm really looking for a piece with long notes for the violins with fast-changing notes for the cello.
