Marieke voor de Wind
The trio 'Trioique' was commissioned by the Dutch (Groningen) GAMMA Composer Group in 2003. It was originally composed for oboe, clarinet and basson. The work is also available for a trio of clarinets with e-flat or b-flat clarinet, b-flat clarinet and bass clarinet. It was premierd in 2004 by Magda Nip (ob), Anna voor de Wind (clarinet) and Henk Jansen (bass clarinet)
The trio consists of three parts, with each voice presenting its own solos. There is a great deal of room for the individual players to assert themselves, but there are also moments when the three instruments blend together in wonderful harmonies.
