BATTAGLIA A DUE
A composition for two players and three instruments (guitar, mandolin and mandola) in four movements.
1. andante (preparation for the battle)
2. spirituoso swing (challenge to the battle)
3. allegro con fuoco (the fight)
4. largo (requiem for a dying giant)
Battaglia a Due is based on the story of David and the Philistinean giant Goliath from the Old Testament
(1 Samuel 17). Since 2011 Marijke and Michiel play this composition on stage. In 2013 it appeared on their CD Baumstrasse 14.
A snapshot of this restless fight can be seen on YouTube.
