Christoph Schaffrath (1709-1763) - Duetto in D-Minor
Poco Allegro
Adagio
Allegro

Among the composers at the so-called “Berlin School,”serving as harpsichordist at the court of Frederick the Great of Prussia, Christoph Schaffrath (1709-1763) spent the majority of his career in the service of the king’s sister Anna Amalia, Princess-Abbess of Quedlinburg. A portion of the manuscript Schaffrath’s duo is in the hand of virtuoso gambist Ludwig Christian Hesse (1716-1772), a virtuoso gambist employed by Frederick the Great in 1741 and later by the king’s nephew, Crown Prince Frederick William (1744-1797). The duo may have been written for Hesse and Prince Frederick William to perform or with Frederick William’s father August Wilhelm (1722-1758).
