About

In six short movements, this playful piece takes us on a musical journey from the quiet idyll of the opening, via an anxious encounter, Argentine exuberance and an expressive duet for alto and tenor, before we pause for breath and are able once again to enjoy life with the pleasures of a Parisian night scene.


Commissioned note

Written for Saxcess for their 2000 Chamber Music NZ tour with funding from Creative New Zealand.
