Three Madrigals (Duo No. 1) for violin and viola, H.313 by Bohuslav Martinu

Published by Boosey Hawkes

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's Three Madrigals (Duo No. 1) for violin and viola, H.313 is one of his most celebrated works. Written for the eminent brother-sister duo of Joseph and Lillian Fuchs, Martinu found inspiration in Mozart's own duos, as well as the choral polyphony of English madrigals. They have infectious energy, ingenious invention, and exuberant dialogue and interplay between the two instruments-undoubtedly one of the highlights of the violin-viola duet repertory. Includes two performing scores. Master level, grade 6.
