About this item

Volume 2 of the 44 duos contains 19 medium-heavy songs and dances of Eastern European folk music for two violins (Pieces 26-44). Apart from two exceptions mentioned in the relevant passages, the pieces are always based on a peasant melody. They are arranged according to the level of difficulty, so that the player can follow his progress better, and well suited for concerts. It is advisable to present a selection of the pieces in a group or in several groups "attaca" during the concert lecture. The edition contains suggestions for such groupings.

Béla Bártok

Béla Viktor János Bartók (March 25, 1881 September 26, 1945) was a Hungarian composer and pianist. He is considered one of the most important composers of the 20th century and is regarded, along with Liszt, as Hungary's greatest composer (Gillies 2001). Through his collection and analytical study of folk music, he was one of the founders of ethnomusicology.
