Description: Each of these trios, written between 1984 and 2007, represents a particularly personal inspiration for the composer. The third employs a folk spiritual, presented in several variations, and is a tribute to the memory of the composer's brother. The first two trios were pivotal steps in the composer's development; tough and neoclassically oriented, with a tightly organized formal structure, they display a young composer's formidable technique and eloquent expressiveness. The second was inspired by the reputed last words of Nadia Boulanger. The fourth, like the third, incorporates American folk material; in all the language is tonal, most pronouncedly in the vernacular-flavored recent pieces. Finisterra Trio.
