    Trio for Piano, Violin and Horn consists of harmonic language rooted in popular music of Asia. It is perhaps somewhat pittiful that not many composers like to write memorable melodies anymore and that art music since modernism is often hard to access for the average audience. In incorporating pop elements but classical techniques such as counterpoint, it is my wish to expand the territory of art music to include the pop style- the product of the core aesthetics of this era- pop culture. Therefore, this trio is my attempt of a “contemporary classical” piece that the audience will hopefully be able to connect with and easily understand; it is my attempt to write a piece that is genuinely derived from the contemporary culture and to introduce such music from the Far East to the Western classical realm in a familiar form.

    David Debono, piano
    Tania Cheng, violin
    Natalie Worden, horn
    Recorded live at Walter Hall, University of Toronto, February 5th, 2013.
