duoW presents five highly virtuosic works that challenge and redefine the limits and capabilities of the violin and cello partnership, and transport the listener through time, allowing them a glimpse into each composer’s world.
The ingenuity of these composers evidences itself in the avant-garde techniques contained throughout these compositions, and by their brilliant and often humorous allusions to the vernacular and popular culture of their respective eras. The listener will hear tunes such as “Yankee Doodle,” “God Save the Queen,” “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” Handel’s ever-present G minor Passacaglia, and will recognize borrowed elements from the folk and jazz idioms.
duoW reflects the vision of these composers, redefining the concept of a duo ensemble with their dazzling technique, dynamic musicianship, and commitment to the future of classical music, which can be seen with this astonishing and inspiring debut album.
Violinist Arianna Warsaw-Fan and cellist Meta Weiss—duoW—burst onto the international music scene when their cutting edge music video, Ghosts and Flowers, went viral on the internet in the fall of 2011. Strongly committed to bringing classical music to new audiences, these two ambitious Juilliard grads launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of a dazzling music video which features their performance of the beautiful and highly virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia.
