It is written in the key of C minor it has a very gentle opening with harmonies evolving around a cycle of 5th's in places. The piece has three definite sections- the lyrical melody to begin with, a middle section building to a climax before a return to the 1st section. This is followed by a transitional contrasting section (poco piu mosso) wandering through a few keys to settle on an "inner pedal" tonic note chime. Gentle chords restore the opening once more- this opening theme climaxes towards the end and a gentle reflection of the opening bars concludes the piece. It has been set to intermediate level, but the whole score is on the youtube link for you to assess suitability.Versions for Flute Duet, Flute and Clarinet Duet and Violin Duet are also available.
