Here is a duet that requires extensive cooperation between performers. Not only to achieve the desired musical effect, but also for the artistic logistics of the performance. The music should be a creation of art and audiences will love it.

Wiggums is a duet with a strange set-up and original instrumentation. As such, it will require extensive cooperation to perform, both musically and logistically. Pay careful attention to the diagram and key found in this copy of the music, however, make adjustments as you feel necessary for top performance. Remember always that music is not a show, but a creation of art. Although this piece looks very impressive in performance, focus on delivering a powerful musical message. You will want to work out artistic viewpoints specific to the two of you -- especially in the slower section and then build upward. I hope you enjoy this piece and I know the audience will as well.
