    I've performed this piece a couple of times and have had wonderful responses from the audience each time. The last time we performed it, when we finished the 3rd movement, we heard an audible 'WOW' from someone in the audience! The harmonies and dissonance really work and each movement...

    is different enough from the others to keep the performer's and the audience's interest. You really have to think of different birds and courtship dances to appreciate where the music needs to go. I loved all the movements, but my favorite had to be the 3rd one. The challenge is to give this movement an extremely precise, almost ticky-tocky sound. But we had our stories and styles for each movement. My best recommendation is to find someone with comparable playing style to yourself and who likes to 'play' with the music as this will make the piece really work for your duet! Enjoy!

    The name "LoveBirds" is what this is truly about... lovely, lilting melody with some syncopation (1st movement)... the second is a bit dissonant, fun, challenging, lovely!
