Duration: 4' 30"

This very brief and youthful composition is one of the few early pieces I still keep in my catalog. I suppose I just have a soft spot for the playful interplay of the two flutes and the work’s innocent, unpretentious character. The composition consists of two short contrasting movements played without pause. Aside from this, there are no programmatic elements involved. I really was just simply writing for two friends and trying to learn how to deal with counterpoint.
