Clarinet in Bb/Bass Clarinet in Bb

Tristan Durie, flute/piccolo; Mara Plotkin, clarinet/bass clarinet; Michael Murphy, marimba.
The four movements of the Trio for Flute, Clarinet and Marimba were written over a span of three years. The first movement, Stop and Go, was originally conceived as a short, stand-alone piece in a playful mood, but it seemed to me to have a latent potential as part of a longer narrative arc with more contemplative moments. I completed three additional movements in 2015.
