Heinz Holliger originally composed these 24 duos for his granddaughter Annina.
Without a moralizing undertone, Duöli imparts all techniques and sounds of contemporary music and sends the young violinists on a pleasant expedition full of sonorous adventures. The pieces of different levels of difficulty are suitable for all age categories of 'Jugend musiziert', and even adult soloists will find rewarding encore pieces in this collection.
