Program Information:
This title comes from an almost random set of associations, but sums up what the trio is about – making connections in solitary. I wanted to write a trio that uses all three instruments together to highlight some of the most idiomatic gestures for each particular instrument. In a way, the instruments bridge the space between each other like in chamber music. In other ways, each texture is isolated like in solos.
