"Ravel and Cummings inspired me to write Two Portraits. In Ravel''s L''Indiff''rent someone is looking at a passing boy, and invites this boy to let wine refresh him. But the boy walks by, his hips slightly bent. What latent ambiguity was at stake for Ravel? Cummings describes the existence of androgynous appeal as an ontological fact. From his Love Poems, different fragments were used to illuminate this fact. For me, they provide two different portraits. Two Portraits takes the form of a duet within a duet. As Schubert''s D965, the voice echo''s the clarinet and vice-versa. Together they are part of a character, accompanied by the piano. Therefore, the voice part can be replaced easily by flute or oboe."

The score of Two Portraits is a pleasure to the eye, as will its music to the ear. Thanks to the engraving, the wishes of the composer are made very clear.
