This was started as a pedagogical project.  I would sometimes improvise a treble line for students in lessons which would help define phrasing and direction.  Two of my students (Charlie Reischl and Zoe Kumagai) gave a joint recital, both had been doing the first suite quite well and I though it a shame they couldn’t perform it together.  I was inspired to take winter break to create this duo version.  It is also included in Pedagogy Book 1. 

David Murray and I gave the first public performance of this at the Richard Davis Young Bassists Conference and then again at the Barcelona Bass Festival
