Jenni’s Sequoia Trio Performed by the Annapolis Symphony Wind Trio
November 12, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Jenni Brandon’s “Sequoia Trio” is performed by The Annapolis Symphony Wind Trio. The Trio’s blend of oboe, clarinet and bassoon will fill the parish hall of historic St. Paul’s, Kent Church, Chestertown, MD, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12, (2017). Oboist Fatma Daglar, clarinetist Robert DiLutis, and bassoonist Benjamin Greanya are all principal players in the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. The concert is the latest offering of the National Music Festival’s Resonance Concert Series, which runs from October to April.
“Their program includes works by Jaques Ibert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Darius Milhaud, among others. One highlight is the “Sequoia Trio” by American composer Jenni Brandon“ Kent County News (Maryland), November 6, 2017
“Each movement of the “Sequoia Trio” (oboe, clarinet, bassoon sheet music) takes a quote about Sequoia trees from John Muir’s book “The Yosemite” and uses it to inspire the music. The opening waving pattern creates the gentle breeze as the growth of the tree starts in the bassoon, moving through the clarinet and is carried all the way to the top of the tree through the oboe. Movement two is sassy and jazzy, describing the kind of resilient attitude that young trees must maintain in order to survive. “The Three Graces” plays on the idea of the three instruments in the ensemble and Muir’s own reference to Greek mythology. Finally, in “The Noble Trees” the instruments play a hymn-like tribute to the largest living things on earth. The two “Tree Interludes” represent the individual voice of a tree and its story.” Jenni said about her Sequoia Trio
