Notes & Reviews:

This CD includes both well known and little known repertoire for the more unusual combination of violin and cello. Kodaly's Duet is one of the major standards works but the duet by Giovanni Ciri is a rarity and is recorded here for the first time. The piece is worthy of concert performance and offers a broad range of moods and sound effects. Glière's duets are charming musical miniatures.

Recording information: Clara-Wieck-Auditorium, Tonstudio Teike van Geest, Sand (06/2010).
