Samuel Gray

Composer:   Samuel Gray


At the 2010 Mazsalaca Young Composers Workshop in Latvia, Samuel made the acquaintance of young Latvian violist and champion of contemporary music Liene Klava, who promptly requested a number of works from him, including this trio.

Encouraged by Liene Klava's fondness for contemporary music, Samuel has in this work intentionally attempted tempted to free the flute/harp/viola ensemble from the historical restraints of the genre: one that has often treated them as dainty and delicate. A passionate, rock-informed piece is the result.

Difficulty note

Recommended by the composer for the Schools' Chamber Music Contest. Suitable for players approx. grade 8.

Dedication note

To Liene Klava (Latvian violist who requested the work for her flute/harp/viola trio)
