An advanced duet for trombone and tuba.
Chit-chat was commissioned by a trombonist friend of mine from
Moscow who wanted a duet to play with his father, a principal tubist of the
Bolshoi Opera orchestra. It is in a concise ABA form, the outer
sections fast and rhymically driven and the middle section using an intriguing
acoustic technique which I first encountered while playing in Saratov.
Other works in this collection include the trumpet Duo-Fanfare,
and Quatre, a work for 4 trumpets.
