I became somewhat addicted to writing violin duos in the ’70s, when I partnered with a violinist after I recently studied violin myself. Although the bulk of my duos are unaccompanied, this is somewhat of an exception with the piano part providing the harmonic foundation. That being said, it is still very much in the tradition of pure counterpoint in the violin parts and really is quite lovely.
