Spohr: Duo for 2 Violins in A Minor, Op. 67, No. 1 – I. Allegro
One of the giants of music-making in the 19th century, Louis Spohr excelled as a composer, violin virtuoso, conductor and teacher. His concertos for the violin demonstrate a Romantic temperament framed in a Classical style, but he was equally adept in smaller forms. The Duets for Two Violins, Op. 67 reveal a perfect sense of architecture, the two instruments frequently exchanging roles, as well as a majestic command of melody.
