About this work:
This work was composed for David and Dorinne Bilger. It was first recorded by the Bilger Duo on their album “The Bilger Duo Plays Recital Favorites”. As the title implies, this composition is a dialogue between the two instruments, first tender and intimate and then more animated. A return to intimacy returns in the middle with new material and at the end with a recapitulation of the opening ideas. It was recorded again on compact disc by the Swiss Duo Dilemme in 1996 and has been re-released in 2000 on the AUR label as part of their Millennium Tribute to Adolphe Sax series.
