Carnivores Duel

For this song, I thought it would be interesting to explore the interplay between two solo violinists in the heat of a virtuoso duel. The result is a fast paced melody that could be used to set the mood where any two equally matched adversaries are trading blows. Since my youngest brother Andreas likes to draw carnivorous battle scenes, I decided to name the song ‘Carnivores Duel’.

The key of this song is E minor and the form is ABABAB-coda. The dynamics are consistent throughout most of the song as the violins trade off against each other. In the climactic coda, the volume intensifies as the violins exchange glissandi in rapid succession.
