Diabelli Project 184 - Wind Duet Part 2

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This flute and clarinet duet was written in 10-minute flash composition installments.

This week I continued building on what I started. The unison figure the piece started with becomes the accompaniment figure for the clarinet. While the flute takes center stage, the clarinet just keeps playing along at mezzo-piano. Not to worry though. At the end of this week's sketch, the two instruments have returned to the opening figure. Perhaps it's time to give the clarinet a little love.

(The grayed area is where I stopped the previous week.)

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
