Trio - Homenagem a Raoul Duffy

Duration: 15'

Trio - Homenagem a Raoul Duffy - This trio was written in July and August of 2007 at the request of the Trio LPM, for their first concert.  The music possesses some French qualities, namely its lightness and its diatonic aspect, since it was meant to be programmed beside works with the same instrumentation by Francis Poulenc and Jean Françaix.  In the outside movements, some echoes of a distant “charleston” can be heard, echoes from a time disappeared.  Although the taste of popular Czech and Moravian music is clearly present, it is the French tradition that dominates, especially through my dear Rameau.  The colorful images of the paintings of Raoul Duffy also inspired me in this trio, namely, the maritime landscapes from the south of France.
