Notes & Reviews:

On this recording, the Elaris Duo traces the history and development of the violin-cello duo genre from early works of Boccherini and Haydn, reaching an instrumental and compositional zenith in the monumental Kodaly Op.7 Duo. Varied in its content, this program of original compositions for violin and cello, and adaptations/transcriptions of duos performed in alternative instrumental versions, reflect a wide range of styles and display virtuosity with a wonderful versatility of instrumental colors. The intriguing dialogue between these two solo voices express a true collaboration offering an exciting give-and-take of thematic counterpoint with varying harmonic textures, ultimately capturing the magic and quintessence of chamber music.
