Work Overview

The Three Pieces for flute, clarinet and bassoon were commissioned by Martin Lee for a New South Wales regional tour of the Mitchell Conservatorium Musicians in 2012.
Each of the Three Pieces focuses on a particular technical approach to composition. The first piece - in a contrapuntal style - is a kind of 'three-part invention,' with three musical ideas, simply presented in an A-B-C-B-A form.
The second piece explores a variety of rhythmic structures within modular harmonic schemes (nine in all). The flute and clarinet provide oscillating figures which are offset with alternating rhythmic groupings from the bassoon.
The concluding piece resolves the set in a chorale-like style.
