What is the Musical Calendar?
Composed as a Christmas gift to friends and family 24 years ago, Henning’s Musical Calendar features a duet for each month of the year. All the pieces can be performed in first position and any double stops include an open string.
This has now been kindly arranged by Iris Adler for two violas or two cellos

Henning has been improvising and composing his own etudes since the age of eight - which he suggests is a much more fun way to learn new techniques like thirds, octaves, staccatos, scales and more! To find out more about Henning as a composer, see here.
