Duet in 3 Movements Clarinet & Viola - 2015)

In the autumn of 2009 I went to St. Martin in the Fields to hear Lucy Downer give the premiere of my Spanish Rhapsody, and met her friend the violist, Nichola Blakey. Nichola asked me to write a work for viola, which I promised to do. It only took me 6 years(!) but, having worked with Nichola and Lucy on a couple of larger projects they mentioned that they had rarely, if ever, played together, so I decided a duet was called for.

This is suitable for advanced players.

The overall duration of the work is around 8 minutes 20 seconds. The three movements are:

I - Lento (3m 30s)

II - Scherzo (1m 40s)

III - Relentless (3m 20s)

The music (consisting of two complete duet parts) is available directly from this site, for £9.50 including UK post and packing.

Sheet music (including free P&P in UK): £9.50
