Duet in Blue
For Flute or Violin and Bassoon or Cello
By Marjan Mozetich
Score and Parts
“Marjan Mozetich is currently the most frequently requested and broadcast Canadian composer on CBC Radio. He was born in 1948 of Slovenian parentage in Gorizia, Italy. In 1952 his family emigrated to Canada…” “Since the 1980's his work has developed into a unique post-modern romantic style: a blend of the traditional, popular and modern which has been enthusiastically received by the musical public.
“”Duet in Blue ” is basically in the key of G Major, but it has a “bluesy” feel because of the third and seventh notes of the scale are sometimes lowered to b-flat and f-natural.”
The thematic material of this short, lively work is passed between the two instruments in a bantering, conversational manner.
