Misc. Comments

  • This is a two-movement work written in the early 80’ s. I was having a sort of romantic renaissance at the time, as is evident from this music. The first movement is quite (can you believe it?) pretty, although there is a middle section that becomes surprisingly dark and dramatic and goes off on some interesting rhythmic pyrotechnics as well, ending in a roaring unison. The return to the simpler first section, albeit varied and developed, is really quite welcome.
  • The 2nd movement is sort of a scherzo with very clear development of the motivic material, putting both performers through significant musical and technical paces. The counterpoint of J S Bach (as always) seems to be the technical ground from which all else springs.
