    Brighouse recently premiered a new baritone duet by Leigh Baker called "Baritunes" ( due to it's tuneful nature!)
    Are there any more duets specifically written for baritones in existence?

    The Syncopated Clock (Leroy Anderson arr. James Gourlay) is a baritone duet. We've done it the last two Christmasses.

    TP Music publish a baritone duet of "The Wind Beneath My Wings" arranged by Tim Paton (Timbone).

    Ah-but these are arrangements! Is there another original composition aimed at the barking iron section?

    Closest I can think of is 'Meiso' which is for baritone and horn, but I don't know of one for two baritones. :dunno:

    I did see two baritones stand up and play 'Playmates' cornet duet once though. Sounded rather good too!

    Would love to hear Leigh Baker play his piece, he's such a wonderful player with a full 'round' sound.

    Mr Syrup, don't you mean "he's such a wonderful 'round' player with a full sound"? :icon_cheesygrin:

    Only kidding Mr Baker! :icon_wink:

    I've not heard his composition for Baritone duet, but if it's anything like his arrangements, i'm sure it's excellent!

    Well I can safely say that the tunes in Baritunes were so good it unblocked my nose.... However I think it is the mark of a genius to create a piece that captures so many types of tune and make it challenging all the same.

    It has to be a must for any baritone section!
