Béla Bartók: Duo for Two Violins, Sz. 98, BB 104 (selection)

The eternal beauty of Bach’s Two Part Inventions, followed by the mesmerising frankness of Kodaly’s duo for cello and violin and the brilliant ingenuity of Bartok’s duo for two violins (both challenging the boundary between classical tradition and folk music) - this programme is all about the power of two! One could hardly wish for a better showcase of the magic of duets, their powerful yet fragile equilibrium and constant quest for equality, balance and synthesis.
