Misc. Comments

  • Written for a summer music festival, this trio recently received a thumbs-up performance by William Barbini (former concertmaster of the Sacramento Symphony) and Philip Myers (current 1st horn of the New York Philharmonic). A companion piece for the formidable Brahms, I think it holds its own... and has a sort of 19th century dash in 20th century clothes about it. All the parts (including the piano) are extremely demanding, the ensemble tricky, but has a truly grand effect in the first movement.
  • The second movement is both composerly and virtuosic, the thematic material is tight and tossed about though the instruments. A lot of close counterpoint. Quite difficult both in the individual parts and the rhythmic ensemble, not to mention proper balancing to ensure the motifs shine through as intended. It is sort of fun to study the piece as well as play it.
