Volume 1 therefore brings together 24 short duets, initially to be played only on the open strings, then culminating in the various fingerings of the 1st position: in light of Spohr's harmonically ever-imaginative second violin part (for the teacher), here is an invaluable, basic chamber-music experience for beginners. Considered here are aspects of bowing technique, together with various intonation problems.
Volume 2 presents the unmistakably personal style of the entire cosmos of Spohr's violin art in the 12 often highly virtuosic duos: an El Dorado of magnificent early romantic recital pieces written by a great composer and passionate teacher.
