    I just played this with the pianist for the first time... It sure is a nice piece to pay. Lots of Syncopation , nice bowing patterns, and rhythms galore. it goes back and forth from 5notes/beat to 6 notes/beat and sometimes even 7 notes/beat. Nice harmonies and quite...

    virtuosic for both instruments. Lots of parallel harmonies. Challenging.
