Pianotrio for violin, cello and piano (finished)

Hi all,

In the section 'incomplete works' I've posted an earlier version of this work. I think, after some changes, it is now finished. Thanks to the comment of PeterthePapercomPoser, he set me on the right track on the dynamics. With better dynamics the whole piece started to flow more, creating better and subtle contrast, make the expression of the melodies come forward. I also made at some points a 4/4 bar into a 5/4 for a little difference and breaking the (steady) flow a little. Now I try to find an ensemble who wants to play the work. Would be fun! Hopefully you enjoy and if you think things can be better or whatever you wanted to say: let me know in the comments! I guess the name just will be 'pianotrio'... It doesn't have a real narrative, I think.

I wish you had provided scores to both the original and finished versions so I would be more aware of all the changes that you instituted.  I think the piece does in fact sound more finished now.  It's a soft gradual ending which I think is appropriate for this style of music.  There's much interesting discordant harmonies in there which you don't incorporate into the whole structure of the piece or reference again before ending (I think).  I would be interested to listen to the piece with the score if you're willing to provide one!

Thank you so much for your comment... I added the PDF...

You have some interesting harmonic shifts in the work; however, for me the work is a bit "static".  You attempt to create variation by manipulating the piano part although, from my view point the variation(s) are not sufficiently different.  The violin and viola are mostly in rhythmic unison which contributes to the works static quality.   As I said there are some nice moments which need to be further developed.

Thanks for your comment! Gives me stuff to think about. Agreed it is a bit static, I often end up composing static music. Compared to other work of mine this has more development.
