Two.. In Parallel... Disjoint?
for clarinet and accordion
(1996/98)

The main idea of the piece is a confrontation of the phrases articulated aloud (in extroversive manner, clearly, "for others") and "in whisper", "aside" (quietly, unclearly, "for himself") - similar to the drama theatre tradition. Brief episodes and sections are mostly fragmentary, they appear and disappear unexpectedly, and the whole piece structure looks like a mosaic of contrasting sound flashes. The clarinet and accordion are sometimes heard as if being independent from each other. They are like two characters that simultaneously talk of two different stories.
