A(opt. Sn) T B
This three movement trio, based on a solo sonata by Philibert de Lavigne (c.1700-1750), treats the original music in a harmonic idiom similar to that in Milhaud's Suite D'Après [Michel] Corrette, a contemporary and compatriot of Lavigne. The title may refer to a patron of Lavigne. Optionally, a sopranino may provide sprightly contrast to the alto in Tambourin I. Players with experience playing the baroque sonata repertoire will have little trouble bringing this work off. Duration: 7:30.

Scott Paterson (A), the composer (T), & Takayo Shimoda (B) perform on the recording offered here.
