    Default Trio for Clarinet, Cello & Piano

    My late spring/ early summer-project was to compose a small trio for my friends ensemble. After rehearsing the piece in July, they recorded it today, and I am very happy with the result!

    My intention was to write an energetic and funny single movement work, which would be built upon the use of the simple motive heard in opening gesture of the clarinet. Formally, the work is loosely based on the sonata form.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks joen_cph!

    I will make a video containing the audio and the score on the weekend, and post it here, in case someone's interested in listening the work like that.

    Like the free-spiritedness (light-heartedness?) and horizontal harmony. Maybe just my preference, there were a few stacked chords that sounded more constricted like around 1:56 and 2:04 (before the big loud one). I think if you moved a note a half step, the colour could be more livened. I think it has to do with the harmonization with the melody before the chord.

    Thanks Phil! The conscrictness (if I understand the term correctly) is definitely partly due to the harmonization, but it is also a matter of using high register. In that part, before the concluding chord I wanted to create an effect of an ascending line using high register in the piano. This part is repeated many times in the work later.
