Diabelli Project 073 - Duo for Violin and Viola

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 week I wrote another string duo, this time for violin and viola. Although the viola's range is lower than the violin's, it still doesn't go very low, which makes the music fairly lightweight. And I wrote accordingly. Yes, it's a little Bartokian, but hopefully not too much. (click on image to enlarge)

What happens next? That's up to you. As with all the Diabelli Project sketches, I offer this freely to anyone who would like to use all or part of it. Just let me know the results!
