F. Mazas, W. A. Mozart, G. B. Viotti, L. Spohr, Ch. Bériot and other composers known for their etudes, pieces and concerts.
The value of this collection of duets that collections from which selected works have not been reprinted. All works are original and reflect the stages in the development of violin duo.
Second collection as well as the first consists of the 5 sections. The content of the first 3 sections es aimed at learning to play in the ensemble.
Performance of such music requires extreme precision of intonation, good command of strokes, rhythmic clarity, ownership techniques such as sound attack, bow distribution, vibration, and control of the balance of sonority.

The fourth section includes virtuoso duets by L. Boccherini and L. Spohr. This is the highest stage of making music together. These duets will help artists es improve their technical level in an interesting “competition” with a partner.
