Duos for Cello and Another Instrument

This category does not include music for solo cello + accompaniment, nor does it include cello duos.

It is useful to distinguish between “equal” duos (in which the two voices share the protagonism and difficulty) and “solo + accompaniment” duos (in which one voice has all the melodic protagonism while the other voice is simply the harmonic accompaniment). One way to convert any duo into an “equal” duo is to repeat each section or movement with the voices inverted (swapped).
