Duos para viola e violoncelo
We are starting the 21st century with endless possibilities for quick access to information. Despite the excellent offer not all information is sufficiently qualified. The information available is usually manipulated to serve a chosen segment that limits the expansion of knowledge. More and more there is the need of data organization precisely and expandable.
Here comes the importance of Larissa Mattos' book whose read I recomend. It is a result of hers master's degree research. The author presents questions about instruments' techniques, sound production and timbre of the duo viola and cello. Her also lists the compositions written to this formation at the XX and XXI centuries.
The numerical results even to the less skepticals is impressive!
If the readers are thinking that this listing could narrow her research they have to access any work available and verify the many possibilities of deepening in the content.
Among other things It is available the name of the publishers, links of performances and recordings and the more important: the contact of the composers.
