PARNAS DUO DEDICATED TO DUO PARNAS


On March 10, following collaborative meetings with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec, Madalyn and Cicely recorded his string duo, Parnas Duo (2011). The duo parnas are honored to have this wonderful piece named for and dedicated to them!

"A few years ago I was delighted to meet and hear Madalyn and Cicely for the first time in a New York performance of my Passacaglia. With this new work, Parnas Duo, I set out to reflect, as much as possible in a single-movement piece, the wide range of their technical and artistic mastery. The work is dedicated to the Duo with great admiration."
Paul Moravec
