Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Passacaglia for Violin and Viola, arr. Halvorsen
Johan Halvorsen, a 19th century Norwegian violinist and composer, was fascinated by Handel's eight suites for harpsichord. The Passacaglia, a popular Baroque dance form containing continuous repetitions of a theme, is taken from the final movement of the seventh suite. His arrangement became one of his best known works and chamber music lovers are captivated by its virtuosity. This work is also arranged for violin and cello. Yoonshin Song
