At the Playground http: Boek 2 Piano Trio no 1: Song of the Wind http: Purpose The purpose of these serie of books is to give beginning musicians more opportunities for playing together. Beginning piano players usually have few chances for being in an ensemble. This is unfortunate, for playing together is such fun, almost like playing in a pop band.
I hope this book will contribute to the formation of many trio ensembles with all kind of mixes of young and adult players, so that they can experience the joy of performing together. In the near future I hope to add to this collection of trios.
Please email me to tell me about your experiences with this book, and maybe order a follow-up collection. Level These trios should be playable for any student with between a few years of playing experience.
Ambition My ambition was to write music that is neither difficult to memorize nor hard to perform. But my main aim was to create pieces that are attractive to play, expressed in a modern musical language and with a clear musical line.
An old Dutch expression applies to this music: Indeed, these pieces are intended for everyone with a playful spirit, including parents who would like to perform together with their children. When you play together, you really have to listen to your musical friends … and to yourself.
Piano Trio No. 2
Since this was an elevated highway, I was looking at the 4th or 5th floors of most buildings, and as I glanced at the buildings, they seemed to be going by in slow motion, even though our cars were moving at very high speed. This provided the impetus for the second movement.
The music is not meant to be pictorial — it is absolute music. These were simply starting points and the music itself eventually developed on its own terms. The first movement, marked mysterious, nocturnal, and desolate, begins with high, ethereal harmonics in the strings, slowly building a long line.

The movement eventually builds and accelerates directly into a scherzo-like Presto agitato section, only to dissipate back into the opening materials. The second movement, marked agitated and relentless, contains frenetic motion, only occasionally interrupted by slower, non-synchronized segments of music. The fast paced motion always returns, and after several segments where each instrument takes on the main role, the instruments join together, racing to the end.
