About

At the 2010 Mazsalaca Young Composers Workshop in Latvia, Samuel made the acquaintance of young Latvian violist and champion of contemporary music Liene Klava, who promptly requested a number of works from him, including this trio.

Encouraged by Liene Klava’s fondness for contemporary music, Samuel has in this work intentionally attempted to free the flute/harp/viola ensemble from the historical restraints of the instrumental combination: one that generally treats them as dainty and delicate. A passionate, rock-informed piece is the result.
