Danse Carême presents a single movement essay for viola and piano based on the second movement of the composer's recently completed Concerto No.4 (part of Instrumentarum Novum).

The title Danse Carême (Lenten Dance) reflects something of the background to the Fourth Concerto - a work written during Lent and Easter 2005. The music is by turns troubled, reflective, impassioned;
hence the many expressive markings found in the score. These markings are but indications not instructions. The performers are encouraged to look at the music as actors might view a text, pacing and interpreting the work to fit their developing relationship to it.

Danse Carême is dedicated to the violist and composer Duncan Druce.
