Ēriks Ešenvalds (*1977)
Trio "Reflections in Water" for Clarinet (and Ocarina), Cello and Piano, 2008

‘‘Silent, delicate reflections emerge on the surface of the lake. It is an impression lulled by wind and dominated by the expansion of the sky. Walls of a monastery, a herd dozing on the hillside, waterfowl – these are all reflections carried on the water’s shoulders.’ The composition takes a listener for a meditative flight of sounds – in addition to clarinet, cello, and piano, you will also hear ocarina and bells.

Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)
Trio in d-Moll for Clarinet, Cello and Piano, op. 120

Allegro non troppo


Finale: Allegro vivo 

Andris Vecumnieks (*1964)
Fabel Cinema Fantasy (FCF) on film music themes
Dedication to Trio Fabel, 2020

Fabel Cinema Fantasy is the composer's vision about Latvian and world cinema associations and allusions, which are being enriched with inspirations of academic music masterpieces. It all creates an impartible audial scene and produces diverse, visually associative fantasies for the audience. Ironically sarcastic, mysterious cinematic fantasy portrays each musician's individual and unique perspective and has been adapted to the program's whole concept.

An affect, when somebody is trying to get out of a gloomy stagnation, only instead of a successful result they get thrown back and ask if it will ever be achieved? Controlled breathing doesn’t always result in the calming of body and mind.
