    These are dynamite duets--full of delightful harmonies and unexpected rhythms. As always, Joanne Martin writes some of the most interesting and sophisticated music for violas. There are a variety of styles--ragtime, Latin, fiddle--and always with a twist.My only complaint: I wish the print were bigger.
