Gabriel Urbain Fauré (1845 -- 1924) was a French composer, organist, pianist and teacher. He was one of the foremost French composers of his generation, and his musical style influenced many 20th-century composers. Among his best-known works are his Pavane, Requiem, nocturnes for piano and the songs "Après un rêve" and "Clair de lune". Although his best-known and most accessible compositions are generally his earlier ones, Fauré composed many of his greatest works in his later years, in a harmonically and melodically much more complex style.

Though Gabriel Fauré frequently incorporated vocal duets into his sacred works, few duets are to be found among the composer's chansons. One rare example is the Two Duets, Opus 10 (1863 & 1873). The first of these (Puisqu' Ici-bas ), with its strophic arrangement, lends itself naturally to a duet setting. This, the second (Tarantelle) is far less structured and even folkish, and the composer here combines the two voices to evoke the unrestrained nature of the dance. The duet ends with a wild yet graceful refrain that suggests a couple enjoying the abandon of dancing together. While both duets are quick-paced, the strong structure of the first and the looser structure of the second provide a vivid contrast.

Fauré conceived "Two Duets" (Opus 10) for Claudie and Marianne Viardot (his being in love with Marianne at the time). Tarantelle is as much of an erotic song as the times allowed. the first performance of both the duets of Opus 10 was given a concert at the societe Nationale de la Musique (SNM) on 10 April 1875. With the help of Messager, Fauré orchestrated this duet later in the same year.

Although this work was originally written for Piano and Soprano Voices, I created this arrangement for Violin, Viola & Concert (Pedal) Harp.
