The Duos are comprised entirely of folk-inspired music whose geographical and cultural compass includes Ukraine, Serbia, Hungary, and other Slovak regions, as well as music from the Arabic world. While they share with works like For Children and Ten Easy Pieces a folk music-based pedagogical purpose, they perhaps have more in common with Mikrokosmos in that above and beyond their practical use, both are possessed of undeniable musical interest and value. Like some of the pieces in Mikrokosmos, the Duos are constructed with considerable harmonic and contrapuntal sophistication, and, despite their use of folk tunes, are written in a distinctly modern idiom. The result is a collection suitable for young players -- the textures are simple, double stops are used only occasionally, and aside from some pizzicato passages, no special bowing or other playing techniques are required. Nonetheless, they are rife with aurally challenging bitonal passages, polyrhythms, and plenty of brash dissonances. In , Doflein published 32 of the Duos in his first-level book of violin pieces for students.
