Abstract/Artist Statement

This trio, in three movements reflects moods or states of mind. The first movement is anxious and unsettled, best personified by the powerful clusters which open the piece in the piano. The second movement is a reflective episode and is in great contrast to the movements surrounding it. It is a conversation between the Saxophone and Trumpet, interrupted and accompanied by the piano. The third movement is derived from the spiritual "You've Got to Walk that Lonesome Valley." It is the lightest movement necessitated by what came before it. All in all, my piece is an attempt to effectively communicate different states of being without any overbearing programmatic elements.
