    for the Conviviality Trio...

    Theme and Variations on a Childhood Dream

    Moonscapes was written in 2019 for the Conviviality Trio based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The work is programmatic theme and variations, following the fictional story of a boy who dreams of flying to space with his best friend to defeat an alien determined to destroy humanity. After the theme is introduced at the beginning, there are four variations, each portraying a different scene from the dream: “Weightless” depicts the feeling of floating in space. “Nightmare Fuel” represents a battle between the boy and the other-worldly foe. “Necessary Sacrifice” describes the death of the best friend, who sacrifices himself in order to help defeat the alien. Finally, “Victory!” depicts the boy returning to earth as the planet-saving hero even though he still feels the pain of losing his comrade.

  3. Three Sketches

    Composer: Lester, Ian
    Instrumentation: Trio Instruments: Euphonium, Piano, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary
    with Piano Three Sketches for Euphonium, Tuba, and Piano was written for the Conviviality Trio based out of Ann Arbor, MI. Non-programmatic and serious in nature, the work is divided into three distinct movements that feature all instruments prominently. The first movement begins mysteriously, struggling to find balance between joy and sorrow. The tension builds harmonically and dynamically into a brief yet powerful fast section. After a reprise of the original material, the piano rips into rapid octave jumps which begins the "Aggressively" section, which puts the technical abilities of all three performers on full display. The movement ends with the original material making one last return. The second movement begins with a slow, jazzy noir-like atmosphere set by the pianist before the tuba and euphonium enter, echoing each other throughout. A solo section follows, emphasizing the low register and the lyrical capabilities of the euphonium. The movement ends with a hypnotic back-and-forth progression between the three performers that diminishes to nothingness. The last movement again puts the technical capabilities of the performers on display. Beginning with several mixed-meter runs, the movement evolves into a tour de force finale that includes long, rapid runs in the piano and tuba and euphonium melodies in fourths. Learn More
