Stillness - Quartet Version

This piece was originally composed for organ solo, but has been used since in a variety of contexts, with piano, ud, electric guitar, flute, violin, voice etc. Now there is a quartet version with Dave Bowmer, Frank Fish and David Holmes.

Olivier Messiaen - first duet from 'L'Ange aux parfums"

This is a unique passage in the history of keyboard music. Written in 1939 (!), the texture remains completely original; as far as I know, nothing similar has ever been written by Strawinsky, Bartok, Schönberg or Varèse at the time or other composers since.
