Duo for VC and CB was written in 1985 for Lubo Georgiev (principal cellist with the Sacramento Symphony) and his beautiful contrabass wife. This is quite a virtuosic work, especially for the cello, which exploits the high register to balance the low bass. Actually there is a long section where both instruments are playing in treble clef, the bass doing harmonics in ostinato as the cello plays rapid 16ths in this high register... lively and exciting!
