Nigel Keay - Duo for Two Violins (2020)

Two-Step Distance

Score PDF, 13 pages

The title Two-Step Distance was inspired by the confluence of two different ideas, one musical and the other resulting from the situation in 2020 where, to maintain social distance it seemed that I'd spent a lot of time waiting in queues outside the supermarket during our first lockdown keeping two steps away from others! Two-steps is about a metre (recommended distance in France) symbolized by a pair of 1/16th notes. The work therefore uses canon thematically, and is constructed on the hocketing idea where these two-note groups alternate between each instrument.
