Chamber Music Duets/Duos

  • Zugger, Thomas

    Dances (3)

    20th Century. For clarinet & trombone (or bassoon) duo in three movements : Jazz Waltz, Slow Dance, and Irish Jig. In this charming and entertaining work the "lead" in each dance is shared in alternation between the two instrumentalists. The first movement, Jazz Waltz, is in ABA form with the middle section being a waltz in 4/4. The melody is introduced by the trombone and is passed back and forth throughout. In the enchanting second movement, Slow Dance, the musical material undergoes continuous development with the equality of the parts being paramount. The energetic final movement, Irish Jig, opens with an intriguing mixed meter section which leads to the rousing jig. It concludes with an exciting and frenzied accelerando and fugue. This work is fun to perform and has a great audience appeal! Recorded on the CD Dances and Dreams [Mark Records 8290-MCD] (11'30")
