#ClassicsaDay #ClassicalBubble Week 5

This month’s Classics a Day theme follows a trend. In May 2020 we were sheltering in place. The theme was #ClassicalDistancing — music for unusual solo instruments best played at home. In June, social bubbles were allowed, and so the theme #ClassicalBubble called for duos. Again, for unusual instruments best played at home.

This month we ease the restrictions even further with a theme of trios. Trios for unusual instruments etc., etc. Here are my selections for the final week of the expanded #ClassicalBubble.

 

09/28/20 Mary Ellen Childs – Click

The composer calls Click “a fast-paced game-like work for three stick-wielding performers.” And how.

 

09/29/20 Franz Joseph Haydn – London Trio No. 1 for Three Flutes

Usually, flute trios of this period would include flute, piano, and cello. This lineup is very unusual.

 

09/30/20 Nebojsa Zivkovic – Trio per Uno, Op. 27

This three-movement work places three percussionists around a shared bass drum with an assortment of other instruments.
