I wrote Triángulo for Duncan McGovern, a wonderful young man who had been my student for several years. His best friend was a violinist, and another student at the Two Rivers Music School was a fabulous flute player. Duncan did not want to perform solo at a student recital, so I suggested that I write a piece for him to play with his friends. He accepted the proposal, and with some trepidation, gave a great performance in the spring of 2003 with his friends at the Mariposa Museum in Peterborough NH.
Eight years later I got notice that a purchase of Triángulo on this website had failed. Fortunately, the potential customer wrote and I apologized for any technical problems and sent him the music for free. This led to a wonderful friendship with Bo Isholm, music director of the Music School of Tórshavn, Faroe Islands. Bo subsequently led us to Kristian Blak and the Summartónar Music Festival – together they invited Duo LiveOak to visit the Faroes for a week of concerts and teaching (and exploring) in June 2011. Part of their gift to us was this performance of Triángulo.
Please see the performance of Mi Jardín de Calla from this same concert.
