Abstract

This document is an edition of the Sonate à due Violoncelli (Six Sonatas for Two Violoncellos) by Robert Valentine based on a microfilm belonging to the Music Library of University of Memphis, which is a reproduction of the original and the only existing manuscript of this work belonging to the British Library (Mus. Ms. 54207). The introductory chapter addresses the life and musical activity of the composer. Succeeding chapters present details about the six sonatas, such as the description of the manuscript, time and place of composition, style of composition, and performance practice issues. The Apprendices offer a critical edition of Valentine's Six Sonatas, an ornamented edition of the first sonata, and a few facsimile pages of the manuscript. A recording of the critical version and the ornamented version of the Sonata Prima is attaced to the written document as a guide for performers.
