Molto tranquillo

trio

Description

First performance: 14 February, 2016, Budapest, Hungary

 

Composed for the 90th birthday of György Kurtág, the only five-minute trio is characterized by a condensed, contemporary spirit of playing. The change between piccolo and alto flute, magical sound surfaces of the piano and the scordatura of the cello again and again lead to new combinations. The piece concludes, with a wink, with a gradual downward move in quarter-tone steps on the low string of the cello to the Contra G, the initial of the composer celebrating his birthday.
