for two bassoons

I. Madrigal
II. Lament
III. Odds and Ends

Duologue is a set of three duets for two bassoons, written in 1997. The first is a tuneful piece with occasional and unexpected little rhythmic twists that give the slight feeling of losing the bar lines, as in a Madrigal. The second is a legato Lament, requiring a nice sustained tone, and the third offers a counting challenge, together with a whimsical title- Odds and Ends. These duets are popular with bassoon players and sit well on the instrument. 

This title comes as one performance score. There are no individual parts.
