Composed for David Heyes and Martin Gregg for a ten-concert tour of Mallorca, these three impressive and evocative pieces display Tony Osborne's credentials as both a jazz and classical composer. Intrada is like a jazzy saxophone duet full of rhythmic energy and momentum; Romanza has a sultry, siesta-like Mediterranean character contrasted by a fast and furious Scherzo in the style of a lively tarantella. Performable singly or as a suite, they offer effective musical and technical challenges for the adventurous advanced duo. Have fun!
