'That great and varied effects may be produced by Duetts upon Two keyed-Instruments, has been proved by several ingenious compositions, some of which have been published in Germany ; but the inconvenience of having two Harpsichords, or two Piano-Fortes, in the same room, and the short time they remain exactly in tune together, have prevented frequent trials, and even the cultivation of this species of music, nothwithstanding all the advantages which, in other respects, it offers to musical students.'
Charles Burney (Sonatas or Duets, 1777)
