This Duet started as an exercise in writing patient, unadorned music that allows the performer leeway for interpretation.
This version for Clarinet in Bb and Bass Clarinet (the original is for two Cellos) is one of many I’ve made during the CoVid-19 pandemic quarantine, and was recorded beautifully by the Égide Duo (Stefanie and Joshua Gardner). At about the same time, George Floyd was murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis, and the subsequent protests spurred Josh and Stefanie to put together a simple, somber video accompanied by their recording of this work (below).
The PDF sheet music is for sale, but if you email a confirmed donation receipt to any of the organizations listed at the end of the video to Sarah Meals, she will send you a 100% discount code, so that you may download the music for free from this web store.
