Duets

duet is a musical composition for two performers in which the performers have equal importance to the piece. It differs from a harmony, as the performers take turns performing a solo section rather than performing simultaneously, although they do harmonise with each other in parts. Throughout the 20th century duets have been common in the popular music of the era. Some songs were written to be heard as conversations, such as “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”. Others were performed around a theme, for example New York in “Empire State of Mind”. Occasionally duets are an improvisation between artists, such as “Under Pressure”. David Bowie and Freddie Mercury reportedly composed the lyrics in a day by improvising together.

Duets have always featured in the structure of operas. Early 16th-century operas involve duets throughout the performance. In 17th-century Italy duets were often used in comic scenes within serious operas. In Baroque France the duet was popular in tragedies, such as songs of vengeance and confrontation. The love duet was characterized by singing in close harmonies of 3rds and 6ths, symbolizing unity after conflict.
