nosagcd 236 - DUO GELLAND -
- VIOLIN DUOs vol 5

New CDs from - our GREAT DUO ARTISTs DUO GELLAND ~ A CD with first recording of The Fifth volume of contemporary Violin Duets with music by: Jacqueline Fontyn ~ Carin Bartosch Edström ~ Samuel Alder ~ Britta Byström ~ Marie Samuelsson.

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.
