Picture of Sheet music  by Malcolm Dedman. 'Battle of Wits' is a dramatic piece for piano duet with percussion. The drama represents an argument that gets very heated, but subsides at the end.

Written in 2012, 'Battle of Wits' is for piano duet with percussion, that is, the two pianists also have percussion instruments to play - a pair each of bongos and conga drums. It was written for and dedicated to the Maclé Duo and it lasts just over 3 minutes.

The title suggests an argument between two people, each with very strong characters and points of view. In the score, a text is provided with each musical phrase, suggesting the progress of the argument. The drums are used to 'drum home' each player's argument. This leads to a fight, when both players use the drums. The 'stop' signal is provided by the first piano stroking inside the piano, after which the pianists play a coda, suggesting that they accept each other's differences and get along together - in peace.
