Festival Ljubljana


A somewhat overlooked combination, the violin and cello duo is nevertheless one of the most intimate in music. The Duo for Violin and Cello  by the Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály and the Sonata for Violin and Cello  by the French composer Maurice Ravel are perhaps the two most popular works for this instrumental pairing, and therefore occupy a key position in the repertoire for these two instruments. We will hear them performed by Duettissimo, a duet consisting of one of Lithuania’s most prominent violinists, Dalia Dėdinskaitė, the winner of many national and international competitions (including the prestigious International competition Violine in Dresden) and an assistant at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, and the Lithuanian cellist Gleb Pyšniak, a pupil of the legendary Natalia Gutman, who regularly performs in prestigious concert halls such as the Musikverein in Vienna, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire. In addition to the above works they will perform a “musical prayer” by Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks, and a work of which they are the dedicatees: Dialogues for Violin and Cello  by the legendary Lithuanian composer Anatolijus Šenderovas.
