May 16, 2004 at 04:42 PM · Arvo Part has written one. I belive it might be titled Tabula Russa for two violins and orchestra. I'd have to check on the one though.

May 16, 2004 at 04:48 PM · Schnittke wrote a few pretty cool ones. That Pärt piece is called "Tabula Rasa".

May 16, 2004 at 05:58 PM · Thanks, Cora!

May 19, 2004 at 08:10 PM · I did a DeBeriot Concerto for two violins. I think it was in g minor........ It was a long time ago, but I remeber it was really cool! He wrote several.... I think.

May 19, 2004 at 08:41 PM · Spohr concerto for two violins "Le concertante"

May 24, 2004 at 02:07 AM · I've never heard it, but people tell me Sarasate's Navarra is pretty incredible.

May 24, 2004 at 02:28 AM · the Navarra is a great piece. just played it with my friend for competition and performed it 3 times in a span of 4 days! it's a great piece especially to bring out that spanish sound. also it's a great showcase for technical talent.
