In Threes (Score & Parts)-OB/CL/BSN
Composer: Hundley, Shawn
Written for and dedicated to the PEN Trio. A fascinating one-movement (challenging) work with a complex rhythmic structurewithin standard notation. This work is the first in the PEN Trio Collection.
From the composer:
In Threes is in reference to several ongoing ideas in the work. A few of the are quite obvious; other I will leave to the discretion of the listener. Essentially, the work begins with a recurring tutti separated by a solo section for each instrument. The music is never restated exactly the same way twice and gets a little more agitated each time. The final solo for the bassoon leads directly into the concluding section, whihc has some features reminiscent of the fugue. This work is dedicated to and was premiered by the PEN Trio.
