Trio for clarinet, bassoon, and piano

Last Wednesday, my Trio was premiered in London, Ontario, by the commissioning group, TriofuS. I drove up to hear it, and with their permission, made a recording of the concert on my handy Zoom H2 recorder. They also made a video recording of the concert, which I will link to as soon as it becomes available.

I had a fine time in London, with thanks to Bob and Judy Riseling for their hospitality. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I had to leave immediately after the performance so I could be back in Terre Haute for a rehearsal the next day. April is usually my busiest month, so it was probably a fairly insane thing for me to drive all the way to Canada only to stay for a few hours. Still, I enjoyed the concert, and the adventure.

I also received a bit of good news while I was there. The ensemble had just gotten together the resources needed to record their third CD during the summer, and my Trio will be on it! More on that as it develops.

Until then, enjoy my recording of the performance.

I. Fast, with volatile energy.

    Last night I went and heard Cramped Spaces Ensemble at Indiana State University. Your piece was amazing. So with that in mind I went searching for information about you which found me your blog. I am a student at ISU but one who is 34. I was required to go to an ensemble for my music history class. I am not studying music but I used to play clarinet in high school. Listening to this piece with the clarinet has made me consider trying to play again. I loved playing but never felt that I was good enough. Mind you I don’t want to do this as a carrer but would love to play in a concert band of some sort again. Just want to say thank you for posting this piece on your blog.
