Cello Piano Duo Pieces
on: February 12, 2004, 09:53:30 AM

I am in the process of finding a piece for cello and piano piece that is approximately under 6 minutes, which is going to be assessed at the end of the year.
The requirements are that there must be equal piano and cello parts in the piece.
I have been searching, but the pieces I find are mostly cello dominated!
Anyone got any cello piano duo piece suggestions? Thanks, greatly appreciated.

one of the criteria asks for interaction between instruments, hope that helps

Movements two and three of Rachamaninoff's cello/piano sonata Op.19 in gminor come in at just a bit over 6 minutes and they are beautiful pieces. :).

i dont know about timings, but alkan's cello and piano sonata has alot of interaction and equality, every movement is awesome.

Great artists aim for perfection, while knowing that perfection itself is impossible, it is the driving force for them to be the best they can be - MC Hammer

any part of brahms' sonatas for cello and piano - especially "chalenging" would be the fugue from the (i think) 1st sonata - must read it, at least. also, the second part is wonderful, and is also very "interactive"
