Is anyone familiar with this duet by Ryo Noda. Has it been recorded, can somone describe the piece to me, what is the difficulty? I was looking for duets and I love Ryo Noda, but I haven't heard of this piece.
I performed the duo last year. Personally I really enjoy the work, particularly the slow section with sustained intervals between the two parts. The work can also be played in a number of combinations not just two altos. My friend and I went for the sop/tenor option which I much prefer to the two altos. It's quite a long work at approx 10 minutes, but its a work that the audience really seemed to enjoy. Our duet concert featured Lauba, Poulenc and Hindemith amongst others, but the most positive feedback we got was for the Noda. I really like the tone colour contrast with the sop/tenor combo.
