composer
1999; for soprano saxophone

 
Written in 1999 as a wedding anniversary gift for my dear friends Zeke and Nicki, this duo for soprano sax and cello marries the masculine and feminine aspects of both instruments. The soprano saxophone sings in the vocal range of the female voice, but has a masculine strength, while the cello sounds in a deep male vocal register, but is often regarded as a feminine instrument. The music attempts to share these qualities, winding the voices together in a marriage of melody and rhythm, and striving to find the balance of play that characterises a strong relationship.
