This is a string trio (no continuo) generally in the Baroque style. This
started as a school exercise many years ago, but I later decided, on a
whim, to turn it into three movements. It is still short. All three
'movements' are together about the size of a single one in period.
Purists will complain that this is not really pure
Baroque—particularly the new movements—and they will be
right. I reserve the right to remain a 21st century composer, even
when the pieces are, uh, derivative.
It is Derivatives I, simply because I might do something else
in this vein.
The 'performance' comes from Finale® using Garritan® strings.
