San Francisco Chamber Music Society:
A Concert by the San Francisco Trio (April 18, 1977)

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 92 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Recorded on April 18,1977 at the Fireman’s Fund Theater in San Francisco, a concert by the San Francisco Trio, featuring piano trios by Beethoven, Schumann, and Mendelsshon, as well as the world premiere of Olly Wilson’s “Trio,” which was commissioned by the San Francisco Chamber Music Society’s Norman Fromm Composers Award, and composed especially for the San Francisco Trio. This work consists of a central movement framed by a very short introduction movement which is repeated at the conclusion of the central movement as a postlude. The central movement opens with a largo section in which germinal elements of the basic musical materials used in the piece are presented in a manner characterized by a static quality. This static quality is brought about primarily by the lack of a discernible pulse and a slow rate of change of musical events. Following a brief pause, this section gradually evolves into a contrasting allegro section in which a musical motive characterized by a strong rhythmic pulse eventually emerges. The remainder of the movement is based on the simultaneous development of these two musical ideas and an exploration of their interaction. This exploration includes various means of organizing musical time along a continuum from a static to a propulsive rhythmic quality. The San Francisco Trio are Roy Malan, violin, Marilyn Thompson, piano, and David Kadarauch on cello.
