This is a brand new collection of duets arranged by Dave McKeown, a fully qualified and highly experienced teacher and performer. The standard is around grade 5 to 7. The pieces have all specially been arranged for this collection some for the very first time.

  • Meine Seele hort im Sehen by Handel is a beautiful but little-heard devotional aria written for soprano, oboe and harpsichord.
  • Jesu Joy of Man�s Desiring, is the famous and much-loved chorale from Bach�s Cantata 147.
  • Telemann�s First Canonic Sonata is one of a popular set of six published in 1738, for any combination of instruments. This is the Third Movemnt, full of life and momentum.
  • The Air from Couperin�s Trezieme Concert was published in 1724 as part of a cycle of concerts under the title Les Gouts Reunis.
  • This exciting Allegretto from the Italian Barbella�s Sonata for Two Mandolins, is a little known piece for an instrument that never gained popularity outside the Neapolitan tradition until Bluegrass came along!.
  • Bach�s 13th Invention comes from the famous set of fifteen two part inventions, not published in his lifetime, written for his keyboard students.
  • This Chaconne comes from the �Semi-Opera�, The Fairy Queen. First performed in 1692, it was fashionable at that time to adapt Shakespeare�s plays into all singing and dancing musical variety shows. Midsummer Night�s Dream was the source material here for Purcell�s masterpiece.
  • This joyous Badinage from Leclair�s Deuxieme Recreation de Musique is part of a suite written to provide entertainment for the court of Louis XV.
