Composition for Flute, Bb Clarinet, Violin, Violoncello, Piano, and Percussion

Trilemma

I am always interested in the crash of different sounds and concepts employed in the composition. So it is in "Trilemma", a composition for flute, Bb clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano, and percussions. I use three very different ideas: one quite mellow and punctual, one rather swingy, and a very fast and rushing idea. Albeit interconnected in some way, the form of the composition is like a pot of boiling water, almost incapable of taming the power within.
