"Two" for solo violin is an exploration of...two. Two movements, entirely comprised of double-stops – even single notes are not single notes, but double-stop unisons – two tuning systems, each movement comprised of two parts, and often the violin is playing two lines simultaneously with two playing techniques. The inspiration for "Two" was the opening two measures of the Adagio from Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 3, BWV 1005.
"Two" was commissioned by the New Spectrum Foundation for Miranda Cuckson.
