Commission info: Commissioned by Boosey & Hawkes (UK) in 2003 for an anthology based on flexible instrumentation. The publication did not eventuate due to internal structuring at Boosey & Hawkes at that time.

To order this score & part, please contact the Centre to let us know which solo part you require from the following: 1)  Flute/Violin/Oboe/C-Trumpet ; 2) B flat Clarinet/B flat Sax/B flat Trumpet ; 3) Viola ; 4) Bassoon/Cello.

The works can be played separately or together.

As the titles of the two works indicate, 'A little bossa nova' is based on the South American bossa nova style; the 'Tango milonga' is based on the milonga rhythm, a variant of the tango genre.

Typeset edition.
