Con Tres (1990)
for clarinet, bassoon, and piano
by Roberto Sierra (b. 1953)- Puerto Rican composer
I. Pasacallejera
II. Adagio Lirico
III. Un motivo para establecer algunas diferencias

Commissioned by Trio Neos. Pasacallejera is a made-up word that combines pascalle (Spanish for Passacaglia) and callejera (street-smart). Although the bass motive continues from beginning to end, this is not a traditional baroque passacaglia. rather, it is a contemporary vision that explores this old device in new ways. Adagio lirico is about the transformation of the opening melody into the vaporized harmonies of the final bars. The title Un motivo para esablecar algunas diferencias (A motive to establish some differences) is another play on words. The initial piano motive is used in many different guises, establishing different statements of the same material.
