Written in memory of Peter Crossley-Holland, a former colleague at the BBC where Sir John Manduell was founding the BBC Music Programme, this superb duet was given a first performance by Richard Howarth (Violin) and Tom Dunn (Viola) at the Bridgewater Hall in August 2002.

While a short piece, there is plenty of technical challenge in this work, with the Recitative spanning the full range octaves leading on to an Aria in 11/8, featuring muted, pizzicato, double stopping and harmonic passages.
