Ribbon (for violin/cello/piano)
Ribbon (2001) by Linda Catlin Smith
Ribbon starts with a prismatic approach to melody - the instruments share the playing of a series of kaleidoscopic, shifting chords. Later, melody becomes more apparent for a moment, a quiet shining ribbon. Commissioned by the Association of Women Composers, Ribbon was premiered by the Duke Trio, and is dedicated to them, with my thanks.
