Product Description

(Ai, Japanese for Love), is a beautiful original composition by David McKeown, arranged as a duet for one Trumpet and one Clarinet, and is one of series of pieces celebrating Love in different languages around the world.

This duet is inspired by the Enka music of post-war Japan. As reconstruction gathered pace, the popular music of the day combined traditional Japanese scales, rhythms and themes with all sorts of contemporary Western ballad styles. Singers like Misori Hibari and Keiko Fuji became huge cultural icons in Japan and helped lay the foundations for todays confident and vibrant Japanese music scene. (Ai) aims to capture the spirit of this emotionally charged music. 

(Ai) is written for players at an intermediate standard and upwards. Expressive throughout, be sure to pay attention to contrasts in dynamics and articulation(Ai) has a performance time of around two minutes and a half minutes.
