A one-movement work which makes excellent use of both instruments and would easily partner the Rossini Duetto. The style is basically tonal and traditional, offering interesting music and challenges for a truly equal partnership. "Root and Branch is one movement divided into six sections, with plenty of scope for both players to exhibit their musical aptitude. If you like the modern approach to duets then this will appeal greatly - a worthy addition to the duet repertoire." (Bass News). Performance Level: Advanced.
