Programme Note:
The Mysterious Boot refers to the boot worn by actors in ancient Greek and Roman tragedies. It symbolizes the stilted spirits of classical tragic drama. I use this title to describe the peculiar and eccentric character of the composition. The spontaneous energy and rapid flows of colors, changing moods and timbre become the driving forces to depict the dark and humorous connotation of the mysterious boot.Besides displaying the virtuosity and sensitivity of the members of the trio, the instrumentalists are challenged to play in an unusual way: different tonguing and vibrato effects, bending and large glides, playing inside and out of the piano, chanting and playing at the same time. These gestures are explored throughout the work to create a unique voice of the “classical” trio of flute, bass clarinet, and piano. –Alice Ho
