3 Duets
By Alessandro Rolla
For Flute and Violin
parts only - no score included

The outstanding violinist, viola player, teacher and Italian composer of the 19th century left a rich output, but only a few works for wind instruments.  This piece was first printed in 1832, and is here edited by Bernhard Pauler.  The flute has a virtuoso part that illustrates Rolla's preference for a figurative, singing and expressive idiom.  The violin part, pointedly rhythmical, is mainly an accompaniment; this is surprising in view of the "concertante" approach of this 70 or more duets for 2 violins or violin and viola. Rolla is also known as the teacher of Paganini. 

The movements in the duets are:
Duetto I--Larghetto, Rondo
Duetto II--Larghetto, Rondo
Duetto III--Andante sostenuto, Rondo alla Polacca
