Misc. Comments

Written in the mid-eighties (when I became a latter-day violist myself), the duo is lovely in a mildly Bergian way. The contrapuntally-conceived parts are quite equal partners. This is one of the sixty-odd duos I have written, all of which are animated conversations between two instruments. The viola is all too often ignored.
