After having scored the film of 'The Duellists' directed by Ridley Scott in 1977, Sandy Watson (the first wife of Ridley Scott) asked if I could write an easy-piano transcription of the theme for one of their children to play. I happily obliged with a piano arrangement without payment. But not receiving any acknowledgement, and  realising that it would work much better as a chamber work for two instruments, I created this transcription, in the hope that someone would recognise its interest - and play it.
