Since St. Valentine’s Day is this month, the theme for the challenge is love (in whatever way, shape or form you choose to interpret the concept):
1. Write a duet for a pair of instruments that are not normally associated with each other. There are no restrictions to which instruments you choose except that they are not a standard duo (so no Piano and Violin, or Harp and Flute for example; hence the name “Unlikely Lovers”).
2. The piece must begin with both instruments playing together their lowest possible note. Whatever comes next is up to your imagination.
Duration: Aim at a minimum of 1 minute
Style: Anything you like
Deadline: 5th March, 2018

At the end of the challenge, we pick and discuss some of the most interesting entries. Good luck and Have fun!
