Default Passacaglia - Duo for Violin & Cello; Handel-Halvorsen

I believe that this is one of the most exciting duet for the cello and violin and was a little dissapointed not to find it on the catalog.

It truly balances the roles of the cello and violin with tons of parallel structures throughout the piece. It is like the cello and the violin are arguing with one another.

Has great passages of both slow and fast, as well as some of the most exhilirating passages I have ever seen for the violin and cello.

Definitely not a "oompa-oompa" boring piece for the cello. I would love to see it available for every member on the catalog to enjoy.

Yes, it's really wonderful. I played it several times in the past. We'll surely work on it.

Thank you!

Default Re: Passacaglia

I also totally agree, an absolutely amazing work. Possibly a violin/viola version though.

It has been actually published already:

Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia for cello and piano


and we will work to prepare a version for violin and viola too.

All the best,
