Titel: a tre. Variationen für Klarinette, Violine und Klavier (1984)
Bestellnr.: 07 325
(...) A Tre, from 1984, is for clarinet, violin, and piano, 16 minutes long, and cast in a five-movement pattern reminiscent of Bartok’s famous “arch” forms: fast-slow-moderately fast-slow-fast. The fast movements are playful, and though they reach somewhat aggressive high-points, for the most part they retain the light, effervescent quality of witty repartee, with the short adagios offering brief interludes of spare but lovely cadenza-like flourishes. Especially fascinating is the glittering interplay of short, ornamented, motive-like figures tossed among the three instruments—a whole aviary, it sometimes seems, of brilliantly-colored exotic birds.
