Programme Note:
Milton Barnes wrote the original "Tango 99" in 1999 for ChamberWorks of Hamilton (instrumentation: Trumpet, Piano, Flute, Violin and Violoncello). After their first performance, he played a tape of it for Erica Goodman, who opined that she wished he would write such a piece for Trio Lyra (Mark Childs, viola; Suzanne Shulman, flute; and Erica Goodman, harp). Two years later, shortly after his death, his partner Marilyn Wollen called to tell us that she found, on his desk, a completed score of his "re-imagining" of the work for Trio Lyra.
Over the years we have each been involved in the performance of many of Milton's new works, and have had much experience working with him in making corrections or modifications to make the works more playable. Any differences between our performance parts and the original score were arrived at through much study and discussion among the members of the trio, including comparing the trio version to the original ChamberWorks version.
- Mark Childs
