Trio for Horn, Violin, and Piano

This music was commissioned by and dedicated to Chamberosity, the ensemble created by my dear friends Jeff Forden, Linda Sinanian, and Christine Doré.  I am deeply grateful for their suggestions and feedback, which have led to significant improvements in the piece.

The trio is a series of character pieces.  The image of the first movement was suggested by a story Jeff and Linda tell of a party in Long Island where Jeff serenaded guests with horn calls as they were ferried to an island across a foggy lake.  The second movement, a romantic waltz, leads without pause to the final movement,  which begins with a mournful elegy and moves to a nostalgic conclusion over a gentle Latin rhythm.  The rich harmonies in this movement were inspired by the music of Gil Evans.
