Navigation etc.

Duo for erhu and violin, written for an erhuist who was visiting a violinist in Enschede, Holland - so if nothing else, this has an international flavor. It also can be played as a violin duo.

It is somewhat virtuosic, around some lyrical ideas. The erhu is played somewhat like a cello and has an immense virtuosity. I will keep a close watch on Chinese YouTube (is there a Chinese YouTube?) to see if it turns up.
