Twin Moons
Composer: Vogel
Publisher: Brixton 
Instrumentation: Flute and Clarinet

An American composer, the title based on the two moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos.  These moons are quite different in appearance and in the speed of their orbits   Phobos is rugged with many large impact craters, and completes its orbit in only seven hours.  Deimos is smooth, and takes almost thirty hours to circle Mars.  This piece is suggestive of the interweaving of these two different, rapidly moving celestial bodies as seen from the surface of Mars.
