Programme Note

This work was commissioned by Nicholas Cox and Vanessa Latarche, who requested a brilliant Duo Concertante of medium length - and this is exactly how the piece turned out.

It plays for about 10 minutes and is in three linked sections, Presto - Andante - Vivo. There are short solo cadenzas for each instrument and a double cadenza before the last section.

Duo Concertante was written in New York City in August and September 1985.
