BETWEEN DISTANT SHADOWS
for clarinet, bassoon, and cello (2018)
Not knowing what to write for my next piece, I inadvertently decided to write for a trio that included two instruments I was quite unfamiliar with: clarinet and bassoon. Inspired by the dark, rich characters of these dynamic instruments, I wrote to explore and find homogeneity between the three despite their largely distinctive timbres.
Performed by: Mercer Bristol (clarinet), Brian Geise (bassoon), and Karl Henry (cello)
