These 2 pieces for Piano Trio were written for the Moscow Conservatory's 2018 International Winter School, along with the Etude-Tableau in B-flat minor, Op. 6. The musicians who performed it were Mikhail Akinfin and Alexandra Parfeneva, from the Piano Quartet performance, with of course myself at the piano. I might combine these 2 pieces (not conjoin them!), and possibly add more movements to make a full Piano Trio, with a possibly programmatic element to it. Here are the performances on Youtube: Nocturne in C major, Op. 5: Romance in E major: I hope you all enjoy. 🙂 Theo
Hi all, So, I've been away from this site for a few years - long enough that I find it has changed and my profile is completely empty! It's time to change that. In February, I had the opportunity to perform a recital of my own works, this trio among them. My colleagues and I decided afterwards that it would be worth the trouble to do a house recording of it. This is the result. My personal musical preferences lie squarely in the conservative German branch of the 19th century, and I've always believed that a composer should write the sort of music he or she likes to hear. That's what you can expect from this trio with respect to form, harmony, rhythm, and so forth. It's in four movements. The first movement is a traditional sonata-allegro with slow introduction. The second movement is a scherzo and trio. The third is a theme and variations, based on a melody I wrote when I was 13 or 14 (side note - NEVER throw away the ideas you compose when you're young!) The fourth movement is rondo-like arch form. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed performing it! I have decided against posting the score. I hate to have to take this stance, but as an essentially unknown composer, I am deeply reluctant to post my scores to an internet site that is open to the world when I know colleagues who have been victimized by thieves stealing their works and claiming them as their own. Even with a legally copyrighted work, it is stressful, time-consuming, and expensive to take these people to court. I apologize to those who would have liked to see it.
.I can't seem to upload this file to "Upload Music" so I'll just put it here This piano trio is from a collection of works called "Tales from Outer Suburbia" based on stories of the same name by the Australian author Shaun Tan. The story of this piece is about a man whose house catches on fire after he beats his dog to death. https://docs.google.com/a/vcass.vic.edu.au/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&srcid=0B1Lo3cSoUa_4NjVhZjQ4OGUtMGFhNC00NjRlLWJlYWUtNzgyYjE4ZjYyNjRi&hl=en_US
