A Duo for Anne-Sophie Mutter
Krzysztof Penderecki: Duo concertante
- Sheet music for violin and double bass -
The long-term friendship between Anne-Sophie Mutter and Krzysztof Penderecki has produced the new Duo concertante per violino e contrabbasso. The two dedicatees, Anne-Sophie Mutter and her scholarship holder Roman Patkoló, have given the first performance of this work in Hanoveron 9 March 2011.
The challenging composition in a closed and compressed form contains a variety of different atmospheres ranging from expressive recitatives to wild scampering scherzando passages. It presents audiences with several surprises and is an effective combination of old and new.
This work provides a welcome addition to the chamber music repertoire, particularly for double bass virtuosos.
