The Triumvirate was commissioned by the New Zealand Trio in 2005. The commission called for something short, energetic and dynamic. When writing the initial sketches for the work, it occurred to me that the musical phrases seemed to imitate the shape of vocal inflections that might occur when three people were having a heated discussion - the same sort of heated argument that might ensue when three strong personalities were given equal authority over the same area of responsibility. The piece is loosely based on these 'abstract' vocal inflections.
