Program Notes
Piece for Flute, Violin and Piano was written for the Nimbus Trio in May/June 2017. It explores the contrast between a tonal center versus chromatic non-harmonic sonorities. The opening piano solo returns at the end of the piece as a hyper-minimalist expression, juxtaposing paradoxically individually simple rhythms, yet complex poly-rhythms shifting between the different instruments. In between these bookends is an exploration of a chromatic scale, presented in different ways.
