"The Nightingale" Violin duet and Piano is a violin duet in Barcarolle tempo and in ternary form. Witten in concert G minor I wanted the lilting tempo in the outer sections to have a medieval minor tone, to work with the contrasting major section in the middle.( flute duet, flute and clarinet duet and clarinet duet also available) I very much wanted it to be a violin duet rather than violin 1 and violin 2, so the parts are pretty equally divided. It is romantic in nature, but uses modes and has a few interesting harmonies. It is placed at intermediate level, about associated board grade 4/5 - dotted quaver semiquaver is the most complicated rhythm). The whole score is on the youtube link for you to assess suitability- It would be very suitable for concerts, contests, recitals, weddings as well as an incidental piece. There are 2 violin pages per part and the piano part has 6 pages- 5 minutes in length.
