Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach presumably composed his Four Duets after 1767, since versions of these pieces for other instruments can also be dated to this period.
Thanks to the present Urtext edition, the Duets are now being published for the first time. The musical text goes back to manuscript sources that were no doubt based on one common source. The instruments expressly mentioned here for the execution are "Claviere" accordingly, the pieces were conceived very broadly for two keyboard instruments. In the introduction, the editor offers suggestions for a stylistically accurate execution of the various ornaments, whereby she orients herself on Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's elucidations in his Versuch über die wahre Art das Clavier zu spielen.
