Navigation etc.

Here is an ambitious trio for flute, violin and piano from my Sacramento period, late ’80s. I vaguely recall it was commissioned by a group called “Alternate Currents”. At this point I had eschewed (and fully digested) my avant-garde New York leanings and was exploring more accessible modes, hopefully while not abandoning my penchant for being somewhat unique.

The first movement begins in a somewhat pointillistic manner and evolves lyrically. The second movement is quite lively fun, while the third sings almost a toon. The fourth is full of fireworks (at last).
