This duet was written whilst I was exiled (self imposed- long story!) in La Rioja, Northern Argentina. I wrote it , recorded it, then improved it . I repeated this cycle many times over my 8 years isolation enjoying the process of trying to achieve perfection!
In this arrangement of Summertime for 2 Clarinets I included some favourite phrases of some of my musical heroes - Stevie Wonder, Prince, Larry Adler and Gershwin himself - with great affection and gratitude.
My other Clarinet duets were also written during this time and with this care.
