Description
Duo for piano and cello is a single movement work. The piece is mainly made up of the motivic pitch-class set (014) and this pitch-class develops, modifies and varies in various different ways throughout the whole piece. The form of the piece is in arc-shape. The music begins with energetic thematic elements and the first section is rather passionate in character. Following the first section is the second section in which the piano part is made up of a pair of retrograded tone-row and this row continues to drive and propagate in an ostinato manner. Soon the music arrives at a contrasting section in which the density of the music becomes sparse; nevertheless the melodies are presented by the cello in a mysterious manner. After passing through this section, the central section emerges in which the harmonic cello part is supported by the colorful and chromatic piano part and the music density is rather dense in this section. Then the calm and contrasting mysterious slow section recurs again but in modifications in terms of pitch and melodic elements. Soon the first section returns and the treatments of the melodic materials are reversed from that of the beginning first section in which the piano brings out the main theme rather than the cello part. The music ends with pc 10 at the extreme low registers.
