Piano trio by David Brighton published on 2012/11/03 18:33:23 +0000 I. Prelude (2:48) II. Adagio (3:28) III. Toccata (3:11) I really like this. Little motifs, counterpoint, slow writing with pencil and paper one note at a time. Good result. A little romantic but not too much. Form is very balanced - 3 x 3 minute movements, each ABA. Experimenting with pitch centricity, adding noise to licks. Row is 2 7 8 10 5 4 11 0 3 6 9 1 lots of seventh chords in there, and half steps. No special derivation. First movement inspired by Webern, but it gets a little emotional. Second movement slow, symmetrical form coming back to the open 4ths in the piano. I learned the lesson of separate attack points - avoiding simultanaeties really opens up the music. Third movement plays with 5s, again row form against row form, groups of 3 x 4 against each other in 5/8.
