Brief Information:

Three small pieces, all ‘half-tonal’, which interplay the two saxophones – they are real duos which each part of the same importance.

No.1 – Walking to Running – A march-like piece with the feel of increasing tempo with a real gallop at the end. It is set as a canon at the major third, though is nothing ‘academic’.

No.2 – Desolation – the central slow movement shows profundity and certain desperation of feeling with a gentle ending.

No.3 – Caprice Miniature – An encore piece, which shows the more virtuosic aspect of the saxophone. Both parts generally imitate each other. It contains Bartok and Prokofiev influences.

Duration: in all, about 5 mins

This musical creation was originally written for:  Sergio Eslava and Manuel Gil
