Work introduction

“Pigs CAN fly! I truly believe they can. One just has to let them. Everything is possible in life!” Aleksey Igudesman's optimism and sense of fun comes through loud and clear in this delightful follow-up to his first volume of violin duets, The Catscratchbook. Again, it is written for 2 violins, the CD providing inspiring demonstration performances and play-along tracks for each part. One of the parts is always easier – the more technically advanced part possibly taken by the teacher. These ten pieces all about pigs with additional poems and notes from the composer make this an inspired and innovative choice for middle-grade players.
