Bruce Dukov's Virtuoso 'Happy Birthday' Duet

A number of years ago I spoke to Los Angeles-based studio concertmaster Bruce Dukov about his outrageously fun arrangements. Well, now he has made a video of one of his most popular ones, "Variations on a Birthday Theme In the Style of Paganini & Wieniawski for Two Violins." (With a little studio and movie magic, he is his own mirror image -- I don't think he's really playing all that "left-handed"!)

I can only hope that he makes videos of his other fun arrangements! And if you want to learn this piece, you can purchase the music here.
