Paired Visions 

for flute and bassoon

by Jay Vosk, American composer


Paired Visions are a set of 4 varied duos for flute and bassoon. I thought of the four brief movements as a series of imaginary structures portrayed in the music.
In the first movement, Tilt, a structure seems to stubbornly remain upright and sometimes tilting to one side. In the second movement, Shade, I imagine a structure that seems to be floating and at times rising higher. It is partitioned by two interludes; first by the bassoon and later by the flute.The third movement Is meant to depict a series of wheels and turrets, sometimes punctuated ,sometimes smoothly flowing. The final movement begins with a reprise of the second floating movement and ends with a romp in an imaginary structure on wheels barreling down the road.
