Includes flute part, violin part, and score
This trio evokes images found on a pair of medailles antiques(ancient medallions). Nymphes a la fontaine opens with closely interlocking figuration divided among flute, violin and piano, effectively evoking the glitter and splash of a bubbling spring–and reminding us that Gaubert learned a thing or two from his great compatriots Ravel and Debussy. The nymphs are depicted in languid, sensuous violin solos, abetted intermittently by the flute. The piano’s proposal of a Danse vif is first ignored, then taken up by te violin and finally by the flute, in a playful, light-footed conclusion.
