“The trios of Chausson and Bosmans will be joined during this concert by the Piano Trio (1999) by Theo Verbey. ‘I consider making choices about what you want to do— and on what basis—one of the biggest challenges in composition.’ That is what the composer wrote when discussing his process of composing his piano trio. He adapted his material using a mathematical approach to rhythm and structure, influenced both by the complex medieval rhythmic formations of composer Guillaume de Machaut and by the aleatory compositions of John Cage. Verbey’s approach has the astonishing effect of transporting the listener into a world of fantasy with vivid images and clear narration.”
