Composer's Notes

Tre Duetti for violin and cello contains the two duets, Duettone and Duettino, and adds an Adagio, which separates the two. Both Duettone and Duettino were previously published and given their first performance, as well as recorded, by Rolf Schulte and Fred Sherry. These are dedicated to my good friend Milton Babbitt and were written for those wonderful instrumentalists Rolf Schulte and Fred Sherry, who had asked me many times to write for their instruments.

— Elliott Carter
