Among Friends, 1989

Commissioned by: Amici Trio, with the assistance of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

Premiered by: Amici Trio

“Chamber music is usually played ‘among friends’. In many ways, the musical relationship is a composition is similar to friendship: first, there is the encounter of different individualistic personalities, then followed by interaction, conflict, and resolution. This one-movement work is essentially a theme and variations.... The unique character of each instrument has influenced the musical materials: the grace note of the clarinet, the lyrical lines of the cello and the wide interval leaps of the piano. The mood reflects the stages of highs and lows of any human relationship: friendship, like music, will last only through the test of time.”


Premiere Information:
March 13, 1989, Playhouse, Fredericton, N.B. ; Amici Trio.
