Handel Passacaglia for Two Violins
LKMP S512002/ HL 126549
Outside of his native Norway, Johan Halvorsen (1864-1935) is known internationally only for his arrangement of Handel’s Harpsichord Suite. The Passacaglia is performed as a mainstay of Duo programs in his arrangements for both Violin/Viola and Violin/Cello. Jascha Heifetz established these duos in the standard literature by playing and recording countless performances with William Primrose and Gregor Piatigorsky.
