Five Miniatures in Trio
clarinet A, viola, piano
Cinco Miniaturas em Trio (Five Miniatures in Trio)The five pieces that form this little suite were composed at the same time as Printanières, between June 2004 and October 2006. They were intended for students of ESML (Superior School of Music in Lisbon), for an instrumental ensemble which I found rather interesting (clarinet, viola and piano), but for which I had not yet had the opportunity to write. The Cinco Miniaturas em Trio are a small “divertissement,” destined to enlarge the repertoire of a formation already used by Mozart (the Kegelstatt trio).
