Bute Cello Duets

composer

 
I had been in touch with cellist Katherine Jenkinson in March 2020 and she described her and her cellist husband’s growing frustration at not being able to perform during the lockdown period. I decided to write them a duet purely as something they could play together during this strange time. In the slow movement I wrote a ‘drone’ in the cello 1 part over which the cello 2 part plays the melody; this ‘drone’ gave the movement a slightly Scottish feel and reminded me of the beautiful Island of Bute which I’d recently visited. Bute Cello Duets seemed the obvious title for the piece.
