Programme Note:
The composer writes:

I have subtitled this single-movement piano trio “The Lotos-Eaters”
because it is a programmatic work, based on Alfred Lord Tennyson’s 1842
poem of the same title. Tennyson’s image of a land where all cares are
forgotten seemed to me an apt subject for a lyrical and tranquil composition,
and many images from the poem are “translated” quite literally into
musical ideas. Tonally static, the trio is constructed in an extended arc
form. Tempo, volume and intensity gradually increase, and textures become
more intense, until the climax of the piece – at which point these
processes are reversed.






Premiere Information:
25 March, 2001, Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto, Ontario.
