This trio, composed in Melbourne, Australia, towards the end of 2003, seeks to combine the contrasting colours and registers of the three instruments. It is in one continuous movement, lasting about nine minutes, and is divided into a number of sections that alternate between slow and fast. The opening few bars (slow) provide the material from which the remaining sections are derived. Immediately before the final fast section, there is a concise statement of the Shaker melody Simple Gifts, which returns at a slower tempo before the brief flourish that brings the work to a close.
Instrumentation: Clarinet in Bb, piano, cello.
Duration: 9 min.
