Béla Bartók composed his 44 Violin Duos in 1931, at the urging of the German violin pedagogue Erich Doflein. With two exceptions, all the pieces are based on original folk music themes, most of which the composer himself collected during his numerous folksong research trips to the Carpathian Basin and Algeria. Although conceived as parts of a pedagogically motivated set, these little pieces are highly effective in concert performance as well. This series includes transcriptions of the Violin Duos for viola and cello respectively.
