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.
