Summer Music - Violin/Cello/Piano image
Summer Music was composed during the month of August, 2017; a particularly bad summer here in the UK with much rain and rather less than normal amounts of warm sunshine for this time of year. However, the work is still infused for the most part with a warm summery feel and the enjoyment of summer is evident, with the slow central movement being the exception - a quiet and reflective night, with the gentle rain outside complementing the stillness of the mood.
Originally begun as a trio for the less well-known combination of Clarinet, Cello & Piano, I soon realised that this piece would also suit the more familiar ensembles of Violin, Cello & Piano, and Oboe, Bassoon & Piano; and not wanting to miss the opportunity of presenting it to as wide an audience as possible, I added a version for Flute, Cello & Piano. I worked on all four versions simultaneously with none taking precedence over the other, and a most rewarding venture it turned out to be too!
There is no reason why the various combinations should not also be mixed up: Flute, Violin or Clarinet with Bassoon & Piano, or Oboe with Cello & Piano. Paul Carr

The three movements are titled:
One weekend in August
The softness of rainfall at night
Bicycles on Sunday morning

Four different versions are available:
Clarinet, Cello & Piano - GM209
Flute, Cello & Piano - GM210
Oboe, Bassoon & Piano - GM211
Violin, Cello & Piano - GM212

Duration 13 minutes
