Duo G-Dur [Duo in G Major] op. 11, No. 6
Cambini, G

Cambini's 'Duo in G Major' op. 11, No. 6, is a frolicking duet in the early Classical style, full of Cambini's signature strong Italian melodies. It is classified for intermediate players.

'At heart a composer for the masses, Cambini played little part in the radical musical developments of the Classical period. His music epitomizes the French galant style, emphasizing a simple brilliance and charm that requires little depth of understanding to appreciate. While his success as a theatrical composer was rather limited, Cambini's over 600 purely instrumental works (including 149 string quartets, 114 string quintets, nine symphonies orchestras of various sizes, and well over 100 trios for various instruments) were quite successful during his day. Even Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, despite having developed a strong personal dislike of Cambini (whom he wrongly blamed for the cancellation of a concert of his works in Paris during the 1770s), is known to have praised Cambini's instrumental music for its lyric charm.'
