These two pieces for classic Guitar duo were composed for the Hanser-McClellan Guitar Duo.
Two to Tango is a tango rhapsody for two Guitars using mainly tango rhythm combined with that of the milonga, another Argentinean dance closely related to the tango. The interaction of the two Guitars playing single lines at times and then changing roles between the melody and the rhythm makes it more interesting for both players.
Millennium Duet was written as a homage to Chet Atkins. The piece opens with a brief reflection of country and western rhythmic ideas, with a melody of a different character. It later moves on to other patterns, at times combining some Latin American rhythms with a little touch of jazz harmony.
This book includes two separate Guitar parts and a combined score written in standard notation only. The companion CD features the premiere recording of the pieces by the Hanser-McClellan Guitar Duo.
