This is my first Piano Trio.

It was written immediately after an emotionally disturbing event, and while still very upset, I sat down and wrote the first half of the first movement (in five straight hours). It just flowed out of me. As a result, this piece is unique compared to my other compositions.

It is a highly emotional piece of music, and some have found the first movement to be quite terrifying (it's not for the faint of heart). Warning. The first movement is very dark.

The second movement, however, is a complete resolution of the first movement. I know of one case where a case of depression was cured after listening to the first movement immediately followed by the second movement.

The second movement should be played straight after the first movement, with only a very small gap between them. If the gap is too short or too long, it destroys the effect.

This piece begins with a long introduction: a duet between the violin and cello that goes until the piano enters at the introduction's climax (at just before the two minute mark).

The climax of the entire first movement is at the beginning of the recapitulation, which is also one of the most explosive and powerful musical moments I've ever written. Some people are quite literally blown off their feet!

The second movement is also very emotional, yet also very beautiful.

The third & fourth movement move at a much faster clip. The third movement (the Scherzo) is almost a dance (it is very popular).

I'll try and put an mp3 of the second movement as my additional mp3 below. (the first movement is the primary mp3).

Hope you enjoy, and please let me know what you think.

Also if anyone performs this; if you could send me a recording of it I would be most appreciative. Thanks.
