Nicolas Bolens
Trois Tableaux (1994)
for violin, violoncello and piano
Each of the three acts presents a different combination of the three instruments. The first act is metrically notated and is to be played in very strict time. In the second, the string parts are metrically independent of the piano. In the third, all instruments play independently of each other; metrically notated, the violin acts as leader, and the others follow. Traditional playing techniques and occasional use of quarter-tones.

Michael Schneider
touch(e)! (1996)
for piano trio
The titel "touch(e)!" refers to variations in the participating instruments: la touche / toucher (French) or to touch (English). This piece begins with no particular pitch indications. Glissandi in the violin and violoncello create specific atmospheres, which then form into quasi-melodic sighs. There are frequent dynamic contrasts between the instruments as the piece progresses. The development leads to an expressive point of culmination and picks up on several re-evocations. The finale is a kind of elegy, initially evoked by the 1996 Dunblane school massacre in Scotland, when 16 children lost their lives.

Dieter Ammann
Après le silence (2005)
for violin, violoncello and piano
The title refers, on the one hand, to the long phase of silence (as an inner absence of music), which preceded the piece, and on the other hand the necessity for one, following this silence, to make oneself completely understood. The large range of expressive means is a result of this necessity for complete expression.
The work fathoms then, a multitude of conflicting areas: here it goes from sound alteration to noise as the result of inner endeavours, there a huge instrumental gesture, the outwardly directed virtuosity. Moments of static from "frozen" textures are relieved by moments of kinetic density, which (paradoxically) can return again to stagnation.
The associative exploration (exploration as a circumlocution of the working method, not the resulting sounds) is sometimes penetrated by sound gestures, which are not, in a logical sense, inherently part of the system but are created in the respective moment of the work process, from an inner (thus subjective) necessity - they have, as a result, a purely "psychological function".
The compositional challenge, to construct the unexpected as paradigm without this producing an (expected?) abrasion, is for the piano trio programme. The rapid scales deceive, the pulses are fragile, ostinato lead to nowhere, the seemingly target-orientated become volatilised; no state is definitive. Many moments subsume that which came previous and simultaneously refer to that which is to follow, the music gives birth to and is itself permanently reborn.
The work is held together more through the atmospherical density and a conjunctive (sound) sensualism than through the structures material relationships (e.g. regarding pitch). All this occurs in a concentrated from and a tight time dimension.

This work, originally dedicated to the 'Guarnieri Trio', Prague and the Pardubice Chamber Phillharmonic, enriches the category of concert for piano and orchestra.

Max E. Keller
Trio fluido (2009)
for violin, violoncello and piano
Here we have three different elements that flow (a word used in its broadest sense): sustained sounds, wide-reaching melodies and an often repeated phrase from Swiss folk music. These elements are not only varied extensively, but also superimposed. Every so often, short and sometimes very strong opposing figures appear, occasionally cristalising out of the flow. Such opposing figures also form the finish, which leads into another world.
