In Threes (score & parts)-OB/CL/BSN
Composer: Hundley, Shawn
for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon
by M. Shawn Hundley (b. 1971)- American composer and teacher
Written for and dedicated to the PEN Trio. A fascinating one-movement (challenging) work with a complex rhythmic structure within 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 these are quite obvious; others 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, which has some features reminiscent of the fugue. This work is dedicated to and was premiered by the PEN Trio.
This work has been recorded by the PEN Trio on their debut album, Found Objects: New Music for Reed Trio, and is available for purchase through TrevCo-Varner Music.
