Spectres (piano trio)

Spectre: (1) a visible disembodied spirit (2) something that haunts or perturbs the mind. The opening movement of Spectres asks the string players to be acoustically distant (from the audience as well as the piano). The music they play is haunted by allusions to late medieval musical technique. The layering of the delicate piano music with the strings enhances the sense of distance - both acoustic and historic. In the second movement the cellist joins the piano for a slow, expressive music while the violinist is still hovering in the distance. The full trio isreconstituted for a final fast movement.
