Two Can Pack a Punch

Having a small number of people on stage doesn't mean a small scope of musical possibility. The instrument pairings heard in this playlist exhibit everything from the stark timbral contrast of the violin and the tuba to the sonic range made available by combining the flute and the bassoon. The works included expose the elaborate textures and structures that can be formed and expressed by relatively simple instrumental forces.
