I've just finished writing a piece for clarinet, cello and piano. I was motivated to write it on hearing The Weaver of Grass, who plays the piano, accompanying a mutual friend who plays the clarinet. The possiblility of writing a piece in which I could join in (on the cello) occurred to me. I hate writing music in a vacuum and like to be able to imagine a performance of any music I write so, whether we get to perform it or not, the catalyst was there (I doubt we'll be able to do the first movement at the fair lick the computer keeps up). It's in three movements and last just under 8 minutes.
