Two-Part Invention

Bob and Nick Childs asked the composer for a short piece for a concert in the autumn of 1989.

The work falls into two sections (requested by the soloists). The first is a slow and dreamy arietta, in which both soloists present their own, contrasting tunes which later combine. A short flourish leads to an Allegro Vivo where the players get a chance to show of their virtuoso techniques as only they can!
