Dotzauer J. F. F. – Twenty-four Exercises for Two Cellos Op. 159
The Twenty-four Exercises for Two Cellos, Op. 159, by Johann Justus Friedrich Dotzauer, continue and conclude the series dedicated to the neck positions. These, alongside the just published Twelve Original Pieces, Op. 58, cover the first four positions in all possible variations, using an incredible richness of forms, melody, harmony, and rhythm.
After these thirty-six little gems, your students will be able to face much greater challenges with renewed strength and assertiveness. While Op. 58 focused mostly on Theme with Variations, Op. 159’s most used form is the rounded binary one, while no less than three full-fledged fugues enrich the practicing landscape.
Due to the lack of the original manuscript, lost during Steiner & Bell’s acquisition of Augener & Co., this edition is based on two surviving editions, by Carl Hüllweck and Johannes Klingenberg, both published in the first decade of the XX century, about 40 years after Dotzauer’s passing.
To provide you with the greatest flexibility and choice possibilities, this edition comes in several versions (only score & parts bundle available here, the rest exclusively on Gumroad):
- a score only one, based on Hüllweck;
- two separate sets of parts, one per editor;
- a score & parts bundle, based once more on Hüllweck;
- finally, a Collector’s Edition, containing all this, plus a long chapter comparing all differences between Hüllweck’s and Klingenberg’s versions, and an interactive PDF where, at the press of a button, you will be able to switch to the other version of the current part!
All PDFs have been optimised to be of the highest Press Quality and lightweight.
I truly hope you are going to enjoy this beautiful music and that your cello playing will reach new heights thanks to it!
