Description

Published by Wolfhead Music and composed between 2002-2005, the work consists of five short movements in which counterpoint predominates, with few exceptions at cadences. The movements treat the melodic material canonically, at the octave and at one measure distance. It is intended as a dialogue for the two instruments, written in the style of the Telemann duos. Rhythmical and lyrical, they are well suited for both the studio and public performance. Edited by Sandra Dell’Olio. Purchase here.
