Trio from Rio
By Donald Draganski
For Flute, Clarinet, Piano
Published by Alry Publications
Includes flute part, clarinet part, and score
This piece incorporates two folk borrowings: the opening fo the second movement is based on “Vamo abri terrero” while the 5/8 section in the same movement uses the metrical pattern (but not the melody) of “Viva a fe.” Otherwise, all of the material is original and based on the style of Brazilian dances and songs rather than on literal quotes.
The Trio was written for the Pilgrim Chamber Players for inclusion in their January 1999 recital featuring music of Latin America.
