    Short Duet for Harp and Celesta

    Howdy all!

    This originally started out as another flute and harp duet, and still works pretty nicely with a flute, but I switched to the celesta which I thought made the lower notes much more clear. Here it is:

    It was fun to write and I like how it turned out... hope you enjoy! I should really get back to orchestra writing, but these smaller duets are truly a pleasure.

    Sean,

    Nice piece. I like the way the texture gradually thickens, and the harmonies become more defined. The two instruments complement one another very well.
    I think the celesta works better than the flute, don't you?

    All the best, and have a great year at school!

    Sean, well done, my friend... a soothingly delightful
    meditation. I like this combination of sounds; it
    works beautifully... and in mind's ear, I'd agree the
    celeste is a more effective choice.

    I doubt I would have thought to do that!

    My best,

    Thank you for listening! Yes, in this case I certainly like the celesta better than the flute.

    Thanks for your comments! I probably wouldn't have thought to do it either, but as I was looking for a flute replacement, I remembered somebody saying in the chat... "I like celesta and harp"
