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.
