Reviews

Aleksey Igudesman is a highly creative personality in our ‘boxed-in’ musical world, always aiming to do something original. He has an amazing knowledge of violin technique and has lots of tricks which he conveys in his own inimitable way, being a brilliant performer, arranger and composer. With this new edition of duos, Aleksey shows once more his ‘masterhand’ and ‘mastermind’ – each chapter is full of wit and intelligence. It is a great book for amateurs and students, as well as for professionals. If I allowed myself more free time, I would play one duo per day as a stress buster, instead of doing gymnastics or practising scales! Whether you perform these duos in private or on stage in concert, you will surely be successful. Enjoy! Gidon Kremer

Dans notre univers musical plutôt guindé, Aleksey Igudesman fait preuve d’une créativité débordante, toujours à la recherche d’initiatives inédites. Brillant interprète, arrangeur et compositeur, il possède admirablement la technique du violon et transmet ses mille astuces de manière prodigieuse. On reconnaîtra, dans ce nouveau recueil de duos, les tours de main et d’esprit d’Aleksey?: chaque pièce est pleine d’humour et d’intelligence. De quoi réjouir tous les musiciens, amateurs, étudiants et professionnels. Si je m’accordais plus de temps libre, pour être bien détendu, je jouerais un duo par jour, au lieu de faire de la gymnastique ou de travailler mes gammes … Que vous interprétiez ces duos en privé ou en concert, vous aurez certainement beaucoup de succès … et vous passerez un bon moment?! Gidon Kremer
