Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) was a prolific Czech composer, writing many large scale works. The composer moved to Paris in 1923 where he began experimenting in a variety of composition styles. Easy Studies For Two Violins was published in 1932 and is made up of nine duets.
Martinu himself was a violinist and the beginning of his experiments in composing for solo instruments and small ensembles saw him write for his own instrument. The first volume of Easy Studies For Two Violins provides intermediate violinists with alternative and enjoyable studies, addressing a variety of musical features. As a varied compilation, Martinu's Easy Studies For Two Violins is essential to aspiring violinists.
