VIBRANCY; KUMAS DZIESMAS (1999; 2000)
Two short piano trios (vln/vc/pf)
Duration: 2 minutes each
Programme note Vibrancy was the first of these piano trios to be commissioned by the Schubert Ensemble for their Chamber Music 2000 project aimed at producing new chamber music for students and amateur musicians to perform. Students from Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester premiered Vibrancy in a Purcell Room recital in 1999 and the music was recorded by the Schubert Ensemble for the NMC CD Bright Future with other works from the collection (for more details go to ‘Recordings’).Kumas Dziesma was composed after the premiere of Vibrancy to supplement the library. It is less demanding than Vibrancy to perform and is also available in a violin, viola and piano version.
