Instrumentation: Violin, Cello, Piano
Year of Composition: 2000
Movements: Three (I. Più lento alla fantasia; II. Allegretto scherzando; III. Vivo)
Duration: 11’30” (5′, 3′, 3’30”)
The first movement is a slow movement, quiet with an uneasy feeling. Music generally has a textural background with repetitive groups. Melodies are fragmented and dissonant, contributing to the uneasy mood.
The second movement is a scherzo. The violin and cello will play entirely by pizzicato and piano will play on its high register.
The third movement is furiously quick. The music develops around the beginning motif by cello and the quick figure of a minor second in the middle section.
The piece was also played in the Bauhinia Concert of Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2000.
