Sylvius Coscia was a master at teaching musicians how to interpret musical ideas instead of just “playing notes”. This two-book set of duets is the most wonderful collection of original duets, each one connected to a piece of text from a famous author. In the preface the author explains:
“…for those who may think that the titles and legends are somewhat too pretentious for such a work, we explain: It is our contention that music is the product of an idea, or at least the result of a thinking process that is not necessarily only theoretical and technical. We sincerely believe that, if a composer has something to say, he will translate this ‘something’ into sound; sound, which mirrors the true meaning of the composer.”
Please enjoy the first duet from each book for free in the samples. I have been so delighted going through them that I absolutely cannot wait to hear how much you guys enjoy them too. Dig in, and grab an immediate PDF download above.
