    Hi everybody,

    I am interested in finding out what duets you all are playing these days. Particularly duets that work well in performances, but also duet books for study and fun.

    Here are a few that I have used in the past years:

    Vivaldi
    Franseschini
    Manfredini
    Carmen (Hunsberger)

    Amsden
    Gekker
    Arban
    Vizzutti
    Voxman volumes
    Hickman piccolo

    Any others?

    Thanks
    Tom

    I just picked up a really cool duet by Eugene Bozza called Dialogue for two trumpets.

    I also like playing Lennie Neihaus' jazz duet book.

    I enjoy the Ernest Williams duets, and Bob Nelson duets.

    Tom,
    Have you ever checked out the duets in the Gatti method? These duets have a really beautiful Italian flavor.
    Peace

    I played Dialogue in a Recital last semester, it's a good piece.

    I second on the Ernest Williams book. My HS teacher was a student of Ernest Williams so he liked using his book(s).

    Mel Broiles' duets are really challenging but fun to play.

    Sachse! Great for transposition and endurance!

    Recorder duets! Tons of baroque stuff out there, and cheap, too!
