Pas de Deux
Instrumentation: Flute and Bassoon
The name “Pas de deux” implies a close relationship between two people or things, and in ballet it is a duet consisting of several sections. The four highly-stylized, dance-like movements of this suite are duets that require just such coordination between the two performers. Movements are: Fandango…Siciliana…Basse Danse…Saltarello.
