This short (1'25") work by Emmy award-winning composer and oboist Gerald Fried was composed during his lunch break between educational concerts. Someone had stated that it was impossible to combine two well known themes in a movement . . . so Gerry decided to prove them wrong. The quintet sight-read the new piece at the first afternoon concert and Gerry watched the "expert" slink out of the hall. This is the first publication of this delightful piece, a perfect addition to educational concerts of for use as an encore.

These two short duets were written in 2008, commissioned by the Long Island Arts Council. The first is a haunting “Pavanne”, with spare lines forming melancholy counterpoint. The second, “Tag for Two” is a rambunctious dialogue in which the two players rarely wait for the other to finish before joining in. They come together at various moments to quote snippets of the song “Tea for Two” in a delightful if slightly twisted manner. Great fun for players and listeners!

Clarke wrote this, her only orchestral work, in 1942. She originally cast the piece for string quartet, but then added a double bass part and promoted the it as an orchestral composition.
