Duo for pianoforte and violin in D major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Duo in D major for violin and piano is one of Berwald’s most neglected pieces. Like the companion Duo in B flat for cello and piano it was written in the latter part of the 1850s; Berwald specialists favour 1858 as its probable date. There are three movements separated only by short pauses, the centre-piece being an Andante, or Romance, in F sharp minor which is folk-like in character and leads into a high-spirited finale. This eventually returns to the main theme of the Romance movement.
