For two pianos, five movements.

U235 explores some of the implications of what appeared to be the very real threat of a nuclear conflagration during the 'Cold War' of the late 1970s and 80s with the tensions growing at alarming intensity between the US and the Soviet Union. The title refers to the isotope of uranium that, in enriched form, is used in nuclear weapon design because of its fissile nature; that is, it is capable of a chain reaction. As it happens, the numbers 2, 3 and 5 are the 2nd, 3rd and 4th integers in the Fibonacci series of numbers that forms an exponential curve analogous to that of a nuclear explosion.
