Beautiful Music for Two Violins, vol. II (Book/CD)
(New digitally remastered 2 CD set) For Violin. The study of string instruments should include ensemble playing at the earliest possible stage. There is much to be gained from the playing of duets. Each player learns how to listen to the other, and in a short time develops an awareness of balance, musical phrasing, intonation, and tone quality. This type of training is excellent preparation for participation in large groups. These four volumes of duets for two violins will help fill the need for early ensemble experience in the public schools. They should be used in string classes as a supplement to any of the standard string methods. They will also encourage music making outside of the school, with parents or with other students. These duets are ideal for recitals in the public schools and in public school festivals. They may be played by two performers, or by multiple performers on each part, with or without piano accompaniment. Published by Music Minus One.

Bebop for Beagles - jazzy duets for Violin and Viola
“Bebop for Beagles” was commissioned and premiered by Mark and Ute Miller, also known as Duo Renard, based in Dallas, TX. The duet is a tribute to the couple’s pet beagles, Hoover and Roosevelt and their way of life. From utmost relaxation to frantic and playful moments - the two certainly knew how to make the best of life’s challenges.This “mini-suite” for violin and viola consists of 7 movements. The viola kicks off “Hoover’s Holiday” with a swingy and driving melody, picked up by the violin and developed into a “big band style “arrangement.“Cookies in Space” might be the ultimate dog fantasy – slow motion rotating sweet treats – you can meditate over that during this slow interlude.“Purzelbaum” is the German word for “Somersault” and this piece plays around with meter changes and overjoyed gestures in double stops and melodic lines. Dog Park, anyone ?Sunbathing does have an important moment in a dog’s day (Cats like it too , by the way). And the blues seems to go nicely with it.The 5th movement, “Flea Control: Mission Impossible” definitely speaks for itself. A very fast 5/4 meter groove sets the pace and supports virtuosic melodic lines for both players.What Disneyland might be for children, the kitchen is certainly for dogs. Sneaking around and watching the refrigerator close and, more importantly, to open needs a dog’s full concentration. “The Kitchen Blues” pays tribute to that.The final movement connects with the first in its “swingy” nature and drive. A short motif builds and leads to a solo middle section. Although it might sound improvised, all parts have been written out entirely. Triple stops in both instruments suggest a full horn section.
