Volume 2 of the violin duos was written in 1977. The duos consist of “meditation” duos (I was still living in a Tibetan Buddhist temple in Hawaii) and homages to Bach, Bartók and Mahler as well as an assortment of others. They are stylistically more diverse rhythmically and tonally than the first volume, while not necessarily being technically more demanding.
