Programme Notes

This short Clarinet Trio uses only delicate sounds on the piano, in an attempt to balance the combination of instruments. It is a 'dancing' piece, with strictly serialised tempo changes which correspond to the pitch lines that are used. These are inflected, however, by entirely pentatonic note-groups, non-serial and out-of-time. We hear an interplay of two worlds. It was commissioned by the Verdehr Trio and the University of Michigan. Jonathan Harvey
