Written in response to Bartok's '44 Violin Duos'(1931) which were based on traditional East European melodies. Bartok was concerned that such tunes would become extinct and wanted to preserve them. 'Birds Reply' is also intended as an educational resource although the pieces are original compositions with Celtic, English, Balkan and Klezmer influences. On this recording Chris Prosser plays both violin parts.
