Through Windows and the Balustrades Beyond for Flute, Harp and Viola


  • Interesting, worth a look

From the Publisher

Thoughts may be transformed when one gazes through a window at the blue sky beyond the balustrades. This notion underlies the trio and is illustrated clearly at the opening, when the viola, playing low, sustained notes strives upwards to a brief loud tutti (the barrier) from which the flute emerges, high in it's range. The process is repeated several times; other transformations include a lazy melody, a pulsating dance, and angry counterpoint to the loud rhythmic accompaniment of the harp.  Beyond the fifth and final barrier lies a meditatative coda in which the harp offers a conciliatory, chorale-like passage to unite the other two instruements. 

Difficulty guide: 8-9
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
