Pas de Deux
This slow cyclical waltz speaks of tristesse, loss, tenderness and longing. Style similar to Erik Satie. Two melodies gently intertwine and separate to create a story all their own. Ideal for a love story. A hanging or resolved ending are both possible with some easy editing in or out of the last chord. Works with or without dialogue. Good for drama, love story, TV, film, family.
