Three Contemporary Duets

clarinet duet edition

Genre: Contemporary


Each of Nigel Wood's duets stand alone as a complete piece or all three could be played as a suite as they contrast very well. They are great fun to play. Swanky is marked 'with attitude' and uses a one bar syncopated figure nearly all the way through. Elegy is in the style if a two-part invention and in the middle section the counterpoint is replaced by one clarinet accompanying with rhythm on a repeated note. Virtual Velocity sets out to create perpetuum mobile with two very busy parts and frequent semitone clashes.
CASS Magazine, Spring 2001

Three really cool duets for advanced clarinettists: Swanky - a jazzy number making very effective use of the contrast between higher and lower registers between the two players; Elegy - softer, more reflective (but nonetheless active!); and Virtual Velocity - an even more active and exuberant finale. Challenging music that is fun to play and makes very enjoyable listening too! (Grade 8+) (Also available for duet AA or AT).
