"Chanson de Crépuscule" (Twilight Song)  (2009) (string quartet/quintet) - The dedication reads "To a graceful and faithful furry friend, who in her twilight years still delighted all with her kittenish playfulness". Can be played as a string quintet (with either extra cello or double-bass).


Triolino (1974/2008) -  Originally scored for piano, flute and violin, a version with violin and cello is also available. A single movement work combining sections that would otherwise have been separate compact movements.
