Falling Song

Bartok wrote two volumes of violin duets strongly influenced like much of his work by Hungarian folk music. I was inspired to write this piece after playing through some of them with one of my students. This is the first time I’ve used a guest musician on this project so many thanks to Ruth Watson for her super oboe playing.

  1. Really beautiful piece. Rich and sinuous, and great contrasting tone colour. Cheeky request for something sparse and still for one of forthcoming winter months?
