Minuet, After a Fashion, for 2 Violins
I cannot deny that my students continue to inspire me, every day. By coincidence quite a few of my students were working on minuets, some in terms of performance, others in terms of composing their very own minuets. It put me in the mood to go ahead and compose a minuet as well. Some sections of the score are rather more advanced than others but there shouldn’t be anything proving to be frustrating to a more advanced player.
This is the very first piece I had recorded by live musicians after having set up my home studio. Nerve-wracking and exciting! Playing the violins are David Bester and Trica Theunissen.
