Composed during a period when I have been intensely preoccupied by two-part writing, these pieces comprise:

1. an Allegretto in 6/8, full of tiny delicate echoes

2. a rather demanding Allegro, full of downward and upward scales in tricky metres (11/16, 13/16…)

3. a rather austere, chant-like Andante

4. an engaging, ‘jovial’ dialogue full of light-hearted, rather ‘baroque’ oboe banter

5. a ‘jeux des gammes’ in which the two oboes constantly swap G major scales in long notes buried in the texture, and finally…

6. a fast, fluent finale
