Duet

composer
1994

 
Duet was composed in 1994 and is dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin and to those ideals of international understanding which Sir Yehudi practiced throughout his life. The piece is approximately five minutes in length. Beginning and ending in F the music is built around simple unison canons between the two violins who, from time to time, slightly vary the rhythmic distance between their two voices.

Duet was commissioned by the Gstaad Festival for Yehudi Menuhin and The Gstaad Festival Orchestra.
