An arrangement for two pianos of 7 Up (Op.12 No.1a).

Duetto capriccioso was arranged for two pianos in 1995, and given its first performance on 16 March that year by Ayako Hasegawa and the composer at St. Christopher School, Letchworth in Hertfordshire.

The piece is an extended ternary structure in an overall D modal minor key, with the central section in B flat major. The piece borrows from a mixture of styles: part pseudo Irish-folk in the dorian mode, part jazz, with syncopated rhythms and 'blue' notes, and part popular music with simple tonic-bass harmony, albeit with an individual style of juxtaposing remote chords.

The two pianists explore a variety of textures over a wide tonal range, with the top part perhaps having the lion's share of melodic material.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
