From the contents:
“Badinerie” from the Orchestral Suite No. 2 (J. S. Bach), “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” (Mozart), “Habanera” from Carmen (Bizet), “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from the Peer Gynt Suite (Grieg), “Winter” from The Four Seasons (Vivaldi) amongst others.
The arranger Vladimir Bodunov is a versatile musician from Belarus. He performs throughout Europe as a soloist, in orchestras and particularly in duo with his wife Marta Danilkovich.
"Ten works from 17th to the 19th centuries, from Vivaldi and Bach, Mozart, Grieg and Bizet are a very welcome addition to the scant violin/viola duo repertoire.
Their constrasting characters address a wide range of musical taste and ability and are suitable for intermediate to advanced duettists as well as teacher and pupil, providing excellent training in ensemble skills."
