Description

10 violin duets, all about cats, to challenge, provoke and above all, enjoy. In the words of Aleksey Igudesman himself… “…these are not the most conventional children’s pieces. But I do not believe that children are conventional either.” The pieces are unusual – certainly, and they will undobtedly make an impact on young players with the support of illustrations, poems, notes from the composer and a CD with inspiring demonstration performances and play-along tracks for both 1st and 2nd violins. The poems come with the recommendation to “read them out loud before you perform the pieces and you are guaranteed a smiling public!”… and with 10 pieces including: Cold Kitten ; Hot Cat; Crazy Cat; Pink Cat; Cat Lover; I Lost my Cat; Night Cat and Cat and Mouse to choose from, there is plenty of contrast. An inspiring and innovative choice for middle grade players.

Reviews

(...) Each of the ten pieces is preceded by a poem of the same title to give an idea for the child's imagination, and the duets themselves are a real delight. Full of variety, mixing dances with the neo-classical, rap, jazz and klezmer, they have colour and atmosphere, and though they are tonal, they are often "spicy" and un-diatonic. The CD has tracks minus each violin, as well as in a full version and with a cool click: these are superb concert pieces for talented children.
