Triple Concert voor de leden van het Storioni Trio ter gelegenheid van het Storioni Festival januari 2011 te Eindhoven

“Last week, I was the happy composer-in-residence at the Storioni festival in Eindhoven; the festival is named after the piano trio who act as artists-in-residence and programmers. I contributed two new works to the festival: a triple concerto for the trio and the string section of the wonderful Britten Sinfonia, and a new piece for the impish Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto, which we played together. I also had the pleasure of playing an older work, Clear Music, and the trio played a relatively recent piece, Common Ground. Chamber music! So much fun. I miss the strange birdsong of walking down a long corridor lined with practice rooms cacophonously shimmering with fragments of Dvorák, Bartók, Brahms, and of course, hearing a cellist shed one’s own passagework is uniquely satisfying.”
