Duet (2009)

Flute and bassoon. 7 1/2 mins.

This set of three duets for flute and bassoon revolves around counterpoint, syncopated rhythms, and economy of material. I sought to weave a texture between these two opposing yet complementary voices that is conversational, playful, dynamic, and virtuosic.
