Cecilia and Martin Gelland, violins - A leading ensemble for contemporary art music, Duo Gelland releasing its Violin Duos Volume 6 with pieces dedicated to and first performed by this amazing duo. On this CD we hear for the first time music by Oleg Gotskosik, Cecilia Franke, Johan Ramström and Hans-Erik Dahlgren.

Since its inception in 1994, Duo Gelland has revived an 18th-century concept, the violin duo, and turned it into a driving force of contemporary exploration.

The ensemble has received more than 100 dedications - mostly violin duos, but also several concertos for violin duo and orchestra or choir. It has given the first performance of a handful of these compositions in the Berliner Philharmonie. Parallel to this work, the Gellands research and revive the vast forgotten violin duo repertory of the 18th century. That fruitful interplay between new and old is central in how Duo Gelland operates.
