  • Description

    John Cage (1912-1992) holds his own special place amidst this stylistic pluralism. Although Cage did not specifically write a trio for horn, violin, and piano, his work Music For (1984) can be easily fleshed out in this instrumental lineup. Music For is a bundle of 17 parts that can be randomly associated with one another. Each possible combination represents an entirely valid version of the piece - ranging from a solo performance to piano duet, string quartet, or ensemble with voice. The version for horn trio is called Music For Three.

    "It's a compelling listen, combining immersion in the moment with anticipation for what might happen next. […] the key likes in the performers' responsiveness to eachother as well as their understanding of Cage's intriguing material." – BBC Music Magazine *****

    "The musicianship throughout is exceptional whilst the AVI engineers have succeeded spectacularly in making music which might easily seem forbidding or even academic to many potential listeners come vividly and even movingly to life" – MusicWeb International
