Bogodar Kotorovich, Violin – Peter Polujin, Guitar perform:
N. Pagaini: 4 Sonatas for violin and guitar from the set “Centone di sonate”
M. de Falla: Spanish Folk Suite
M. Skirik: Spanish Dance
The duet B. Kotorovich – P. Polujin came into being in 1970. The performance of the two musicians in concert halls, radio and TV enjoyed a wide popularity. The TV film “Musical Gift” is devoted to this duet.
B. Kotorovich and P. Polujin have revived one of the old forms of ensemble music, which was born in the 17th century. Many composers wrote for this ensemble for strings and guitar, including Vivaldi, Boccherini, Guiuliani, Haydn, Schubert, Villa-Lobos, Ibert, Auric, Ponce, Stravinsky, Sibelius and Soviet composers: Asafiev, Rechmensky, Skorik and Stetsuk.
A special place in the repertoire of Kotorovich and Polujin is occupied by works of Paganini, where the guitar plays various roles, especially in quartets and trios.
