Trio Ruvido for clarinet, bassoon, and piano (2016)

Trio Ruvido was composed during the Spring/Summer of 2016 in Hampton, Virginia for pianist Chialing Hsieh and the chamber trio Trifecta! (which includes clarinetist Lori Baruth and bassoonist David Oyen).

This work contains a wide range of “ruvido impressions” in an undoctrinaire style. Aspects of architectonic form, while somewhat traditional, are articulated with great freedom—with allowances for recapitulative gestures. A projection of a variety of tense and calm gestures of tonal relations is presented in a postmodern framework.
