Duo No. 1 for violin and cello, H.157 by Bohuslav Martinu

Published by Max Eschig

Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) was a prolific and noted Czech composer of the 20th century. Like Dvorak and Janacek before him, a certain Czech spirit is prominent in his music. Early studies in France exposed him to the music of Debussy, Stravinsky, and jazz; his music later took on neo-classical qualities after his move to the United States, where he was associated with the Boston Symphony and Tanglewood. His writing is characterized by piquant harmony, kinetic, driving passages, and glittering color. He made important contributions to virtually all genres, including symphonies, concertos, and extensive chamber music.

Martinu wrote his extroverted first Duo for violin and cello, H.157 in 1927, during his time studying in Paris. This invigorating early work is presented in two movements, a ''Preludium'' and an extensive, faster ''Rondo''. Includes two performing scores. Master level, grade 6.
