“Dialogue” is a one-movement duet for horn and tuba in two sections. The first, designed to feel non-metered, works with steady eighth notes and trills. The section gradually grows in dynamic intensity until it dissolves into the second section. The latter contrasts with the former by its more definite rhythmic patterns and by its shaping of large-scale dynamics to grow to mezzo forte (medium loud) and then to die out. The work begins and ends with solo tuba on a low B.
