PROGRAM PROPOSALS

VIOLIN & HARPSICHORD

In the following you will find program proposals for a duo recital baroque violin and harpsichord.

Some programs offer works that are rarely recorded or played in concerts. They need extraordinary good skills especially from the violin player first because of the composion's virtuosity and second because the violin strings are not tuned as they are usually  which is called accordatura, but they are tuned in scordatura.  

If you prefer other combinations or pieces, a solution will be found easily.

The Artists' Agency is looking foreward to your contact.
