ALESSANDRO ROLLA (1757-1841): 3 Duets for Violin and Viola, Op. 15.
Catalogue Number: 07N043
Description: A virtuoso on both violin and viola, Rolla was also a teacher of Paganini and was much admired by the latter. His duets, in fact, require Paganinian technical ability: no other examples of this genre can compare with these works, where violin and viola, on equal terms, intertwine tracing acrobatic passages of dazzling virtuosity. Salvatore Accardo (violin), Luigi Alberto Bianchi (Viola). Original 1972 recording released in 1999 by Dynamic (07B033).
