Piano Trio “The Chronophage” – 26th & 27th April

Third Angle EnsembleMy Piano Trio “The Chronophage” has won the Third Angle Ensemble‘s New Ideas in Music Competition. The Third Angle Ensemble, from Portland Oregon, will now premiere the work in their 26th and 27th April concerts at the Lincoln Recital Hall at Portland State University. The piece itself was written as the final piece for my Composition Masters portfolio but has not yet been performed – you can read about its Horological inspiration here.

The competition featured three categories – a Regional competition for composers from Oregon, Washington and Idaho (won by Justin Ralls), a National competition for American composers (won by Matthew Peterson), and the International competition. The April concerts will feature all the winning pieces (my Piano Trio, Ralls’ Anthrophony and Peterson’s Näcken) plus the runners up in each category (pieces by A Mao Wang, Steven Snethkamp and Greg Steinke). The ensemble will offer the three winning compositions for download at their website.
