Duo concertant in A major for Two Violins
Berwald Duo concertant in A major for Two Violins
Franz Berwald's Duo concertant for two violins, completed before 1818 or 1817, is the composer's earliest preserved work. It may possibly have come into being for a very practical reason, namely, for the concerts that the composer gave together with his brother August. In 1812 at age 16 Franz joined the orchestra of the Royal Opera in Stockholm as violinist, and his younger brother followed in his footsteps three years later. Between April 1816 and the Summer of 1819 the brothers are known to have played together as soloists in at least eight concerts in Sweden and Finland.
