Comments from the composer:
“The 1st movement of my Trio, Allegro vivo. opens with a strong tutti rhythmic figure that repeats often throughout the movement. It’s followed by a syncopated ‘fuguelet’ that also repeats in many different ways throughout with lots of chromatic shifting. After a brief slow variation, the opening material returns with more power to end the movement.
This 2nd Mov movement, Andante, opens into a wintery landscape with just the cello introducing the main theme, then the violin enters followed by the flute. The feeling of an arctic landscape gives way to the joyful warmth of summer, then the cycle repeats but with a climax of a thunderstorm finally ending with the silence of winter, once again.
After the solitude and winter reflections of the longer slow movement, comes this energetic and warm response, Presto, with reassuring harmonies, a fast pace with lots of notes and perhaps a hint of a Latin American celebration of life!”
