The main objective of this string trio composition
is to show the unity which exists within the string
trio. I was most fascinated to explore string
techniques transforming the trio sound to one of a
completely different instrument. That is why there
is a suggestion of an accordion sound (particularly
heard at the beginning) or that of a brass fanfare.
The piece is in three inter-linking sections:
reflective - lively - stretto of the main musical
ideas. The title is a reminder that aiming to
visualise sound is one of the most satisfying
experiences our imagination can give us through
music. Written for the ASCH Trio.
