The Monticello Trio: Tannis Gibson, piano; Mark Rush, violin; Mathis Wexler, cello


Like Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and other early American architectural landmarks, the three works on this disc are examples of Americans revisiting and reinterpreting classical forms of the past. The violin-cello-piano instrumentation dates from the time of Bach as an outgrowth of the figured bass. It was employed extensively by Beethoven, primarily using the sonata form, and by most major Western composers thereafter. Here, such twentieth century sensibilities as asymmetry, quotation, and extended instrumental techniques are applied to the piano trio form in works that date from near the beginning and ending of our own century.
