Passacaglia - The Impossible Duet

Uploaded on Aug 24, 2015

This piece was written by Johan Halvorsen based on a theme written by George Frideric Handel. I did not arrange this myself. The sheet music that I had was arranged for violin and viola so I decided to create an arrangement for violin and cello. Thank you to fellow Musescore composer Jayfish for bringing this piece to my attention.

Thanks for giving me such a fun time playing this XD
This is great!
Its a little fast. And some of the notes are wrong. For the real version of this song, look up passacaglia imslp.
I want to play the viola part to this so bad. My teacher says I can't do it and I can't believe I listened to her.
If it's above your level it would be smarter just to baby step your way up until you can play it. Don't say you can't you just need to get there.
You can do anything you put your heart to. With a dedication and practice I'm sure you'll be able to play this piece.
Nice arrangement. This is going to take a while to learn. Hopefully I will be able to play this before my life ends.
No está en la octava correcta las partes del cello. :/
So Impossible. I loved this piece before I even found it on musescore. It was originally written for violin and viola and now violin and cello!!!!!!!!! Very CLEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a violinist and violist so pieces like these are interesting to me.
Actually it was originally for Organ, but the violin and viola was the first string transcription
Yes, "impossible" is exactly what I'm telling my prof this piece is all the time! He just directed me to the unearthly performance of Julia Fischer and Daniel Müller-Schott on youtube (please listen to this, both the artistic and recording qualities are enormous) and insists that one (and therefore I after lots of practising :$) can play this. Well, apparently I can't. But I enjoy this song nonetheless and will keep it in my heart for one of the most beautiful pieces of classical music ever. And, maybe, be able to play it one day... Thank you very much for this quality transcription!
Great ! I was looking for this song :D
