The piece Two Portraits paints a musical picture of the composer Paul Lewis's partner harpist Elizabeth Jane Baldry's sons.
Composed in 2003 when the boys were in their early teens. Two Portraits captures the characters of the calm, loving and spiritual Edmund and the energetic extrovert Alex.
Echoing the boys different personalities, the two movements are contrasting melodic pieces - the first serene and lyrical with the opportunity for some legato playing, and the second unexpectedly lively and jazzy and a chance to let the musical hair down.
