Duo Sonata


Written for double bassist Robert Nairn and violist Heidi von Bernewitz, the Duo Sonata is cast in four contrasting movements. the first movement is rhapsodic and lyrical, the second a scherzo in triple meter, the third a lullaby over a rocking ostinato figure and the last movement is a fast and furious toccata.
