Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano

   (2008) for flute, cello, and piano

Members of the Empyrean Ensemble: Tod Brody, flute; Thalia Morre, cello; Michael  Seth Orland, piano

Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano (2008) explores the unique sounds of each instrument and various ways of combining those sounds.   The music moves between sections in which the ensemble is treated as one multi-faceted instrument, fusing the three distinct timbres and characters of each individual voice into composite gestures and textures, and those in which the flute and cello take on more soloistic roles.  This piece – while not intended to convey any particular story – is rather dramatic, so let your imagination take you where it may!  Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano was composed for the Noul Trio who gave its international premiere in Korea in 2011.  It was premiered by the Empyrean Ensemble in 2009.
