Heitor Villa-Lobos' Children's Carnival (1919) includes this entertaining piece called The Little Ragpicker's Adventures. It is set for flute and bassoon duet by John Gibson. Villa-Lobos' music frequently has a story in mind that listeners can re-create themselves from the hints found in the titles while listening to the music. He used modern musical techniques in his compositions that are infused with a strong liking for J. S. Bach, along with a South American flair. Both a score of the duet and separate parts are provided. Wonderful music!

    Duration is excellent to round off a program. Good balance between the two instruments with option to simply execute a straightforward reading or inject max drama. In short, a fun piece that is kind to tired chops.
