Doïna: a poetic song or lament characteristic of music from the Balkans. Inspired by a Moldavian Doïna, this 6 minute concert duet for two Guitars presents characteristic rhythms and melodies of Balkan, Tzigane and klezmer music. The piece begins calmly with a highly ornamented prelude, where the two "prepared" Guitars imitate the cimbalom. Next, the music becomes agitated to the point of exuberance, before closing with a simple and tender song, typical of the Moldavian lament: the "Doïna". This duet is intended for advanced students or professional guitarists.
