Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart » Violin-Viola Duos

The copy of Ferdinand David's edition comes from the Uppingham Collection and contains not only printed annotations, but also his own manuscript annotations in both violin and viola parts. This fascinating source is discussed at length in a series of linked articles beginning here.

Schulz's edition reveals many similarities of approach to David's and, in addition, clarifies aspects of bow stroke (through the use of lines rather than dots in many places and occasionally identifying the part of the bow).

Schnirlin, unusually, includes the whole of the violin parts in his Neue Weg. His edition suggests a rather different (more modern?) approach to bowing, but the fingering remains rooted in 19th-century practice.
