(from Scénes, V.87 #11)
for solo trumpet

Another in a continuing series of solo concert etudes for every instrument, Duetto explores the inherent harmonic basis of the trumpet which not only allows it to function in traditional twelve tone equal temperament, but also to produce many just intuned 'microtones.'

In the work the performer plays with traditional fingerings, alternate fingerings and completely new fingerings, creating a harmonic fabric which illustrates the relationships betwen subtle shades of tonal color. The score includes an explanatory preface and fingering chart.
