‘We do not normally associate the name Franz Liszt with chamber music–the intimate and restrained nature of chamber music seems far removed from the extroverted virtuosity of much of of Liszt’s music. But he did write a small number of works for chamber ensembles. During the mid-1830s, when Liszt–then in his twenties–was based in Paris and making his career as a virtuoso pianist, he met the French violinist and composer Charles Philippe Lafont (1781-1839). Out of this friendship came a piece we know today as Liszt’s Grand Duo Concertante, though evidence suggests that it was composed as a collaboration between the two men. They probably performed the Grand Duo in Paris, but the music was still in manuscript when Lafont was killed in 1839 when his carriage overturned. Liszt retained his affection for this music, however, and he returned to it in 1849 and revised it. The Grand Duo was finally published in 1852, nearly two decades after it had been first composed.

The title Grand Duo Concertante suggests a virtuoso work, and this is indeed virtuoso music: it is beautifully written for both instruments, both instruments have cadenza-like passages along the way, and the idiomatic writing for violin suggests that Lafont had a great deal to do with creating that part. While the Grand Duo may be a virtuoso piece, it takes the form of a set of variations, and those variations are based on the song Le marin (“The Sailor”) by Lafont himself. A dramatic and substantial introduction leads to Lafont’s gentle melody, stated first by the violin and then taken up by the piano. Four variations follow, and these give both performers plenty of opportunity to shine. The Grand Duo is rounded off by a lengthy finale, and Lafont’s original melody makes a brilliant reappearance in the course of the rush to the close.” LA JOLLA CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY
