The Suite presents four contrasting short pieces for two treble instruments. The first movement develops a series of short but broad vignettes, many based on nervous energy of the trill. The second is a comical exchange of melodies between the instruments with a jumpy accompaniment. The third movement is a slow and mournful meditation on a largely unchanging idea. The fourth movement, like the first, presents a number of short ‘scenes,’ in which some past ideas briefly resurface before the piece ends in an abrupt tumble.
