Hat-trick was composed for Joshua Batty, Diana Doherty and Todd Gibson-Cornish for performance in the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's chamber music series. Loosely cast in a rondo form, lively and virtuosic fast sections are interspersed with more lyrical, introspective interludes.
This piece is guided by some of the same principles that denote a typical 'hat-trick' (the scoring of three goals by a single player) in a football match. In the case of this trio, the 'player' is not an individual but in fact a collective outcome of the three players working as a taut, energised ensemble. Rapidly interweaving lines are passed from performer to performer, partnerships between pairs of instruments are temporarily formed but then transferred, whilst each instrument also has several of their own soloistic moments in the sun. Not all of the music is fast - a short, slow interlude partway through the work brings out more introspective, expressive melodic lines before a vigorous conclusion.
