Slavic Grooves and Meditations, (Duos) are a set of relatively simple pieces, which, were in effect sketches, or the seeds for two larger sets of works, both of the same name, but further developed for Trio (flute, violin and viola) which we performed and toured to great effect in Europe, (2014) and then again for Quintet (flute, viola, piano percussion and bass). As these duos, however, they stand complete in themselves.
Instrumentation: Flute, violin.
Duration: 37 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Some movements with "bent" Balkan rhythms, one movement with simple improvisation required...
Contents note: 1. At Peace -- 2. In Motion Entwined -- 3. Seed (Oj Javore) -- 4. Suspende-- 5. Goes the Time.... (Ide Vreme).
Dedication note: "To Carla, who came into my life..........."
The composer notes:
