Description

The "Six Duos concertans", which are today known under the opus number 23, feature wonderful instrumental music by Ignaz Pleyel. in contrast to other works to which the composer assigned the attribute "easy", the pieces from Op. 23 are designated "concertante". They are indeed more demanding in terms of execution, but at the same time appealing works from the quill of the then extremely popular Pleyel, works that are eminently usable in music lessons and recitals. The uniformly two-movement compositions bring together great melodic richness and eclectic forms in their colourful mixture of sonata movements, rondos, minuets and variations. Like all Urtext editions of instrumental music from Henle, this edition is also comfortably equipped: an unmarked performance score is supplemented by two enclosed parts whose markings stem from Evelyne Grüb-Trauer's many years of teaching experience. The first Urtext edition of these popular duets!
