Chamber Music at the Palace
German composer Bruch was a prolific composer, remembered mostly for his Violin Concerto No. 1. Eight Pieces, originally written for clarinet, viola and piano, were eventually transcribed by the composer himself for this formation.
Shostakovich’s Three Violin Duets were arranged from other pieces by the composer. The Präludium re-works music from the film The Gadfly originally scored for two guitars, the humorous Gavotte is taken from the incidental music to The Human Comedy and the Waltz is derived from a piano composition.
