Abstract

This composition is written for Flute, Cello and Piano. It is a three-movement piece that features all of the ensemble instruments as soloist and in accompanying roles. This composition employs a modern harmonic approach with the third movement in the unusual metre of 9/8.

Research Statement

Research Background A piano trio is a group of piano and two other instruments, usually a violin and a cello, or a piece of music written for such a group. It is one of the most common forms found in classical chamber music. Flute-cello-piano (FCP) trios are relatively uncommon. Possibly the most frequently performed piece is Carl Maria von Weber’s Op. 63. 
The objective was to explore the sonorities between the wind, string and percussive keyboard parts.
Research Contribution A non-diatonic harmonic approach was employed as a means of resisting the tyranny of the tonic. Each movement has several sections reflecting a change of instrumental emphasis or textural approach. The first movement begins with a repeated rhythmic figure that re-appears later in the piece. There is a fugal section that adds to the textural balance as each instrument enters with the melodic line in a sequential fashion. The second movement is a slower movement with solo cello beginning with an exposition of the melody. Each instrument is featured. The third movement begins with a complicated concerted figure that moves into a syncopated flute line and then reflected by the other two instruments.
Research Significance This composition represents and ongoing research into the harmonic, melodic and textural interaction between instruments in a chamber setting. The sonic variation that develops between the wind string and percussive keyboard instruments create a unique combination for the listener. As a North Queensland composition it situates as part of a continuing narrative of life in the tropics.
