Our recommended choice of instruments for a string duo is violin and cello. The violin and cello duo is a perfect choice for small, intimate occasions that call for the rich sound of a group of string players, but where the venue has limited space to accommodate the musicians.
This combination of instruments is quite versatile, with repertoire ranging from the classics of Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven, as well as more contemporary favorites. A couple examples of music performed at some of our past engagements with a violin and cello duo include Pachelbel’s “Canon in D”, Katy Perry’s Firework, and Bach’s Air.
Below is a video sample of one of our duos performing Semisonic’s “Closing Time”:
