04.16.13 Premiere Performance: Hehmsoth’s “Three Shades of Blue” composition was commissioned by the Kandinsky Trio and is written specifically for the Common Experience theme for 2012-2013: “A Global Odyssey: Exploring Our Connections to the Changing World.” The Kandinsky Trio is celebrating one of the longest and most successful ensemble collaborations in the U.S. with over a thousand concerts of chamber music in the U.S., Europe, and Canada.
Program notes: Hank’s newest work “Three Shades of Blue” 2013: Hank writes,
“This pieces is all about threes. It’s in ¾ meter, it’s written for the Kandinsky Trio, and there are three improvisational areas, three sections, and generally three main ideas developed. It begins in a contemporary art music style, which serves as an introduction to a theme that includes jazz improvisation among all three players. When the opening idea returns, it morphs into a new conclusion.”
I will upload a couple of performances onto YouTube soon.
