The compositional output of Tadeusz Paciorkiewicz covers every genre of instrumental, vocal and vocal-instrumental music. The wealth of chamber compositions include many works scored for wind instruments. The Reed Trio, from 1963, clearly echoes the neoclassical aesthetic that held sway during the first three decades of the twentieth century. It was then that woodwind players established a three-part chamber texture that composers found particularly interesting. Without musicians’ active participation in the composition process, the number of works for such forces would be much lower. Still today, a reed trio represents a charming way for woodwind musicians to explore the possibilities which their instruments offer in terms of sonorities, expression and performance, while also remaining an endless source of inspiration for successive generations of composers. Tadeusz Paciorkiewicz’s Trio was written to commission for the head of the woodwind chamber class at the State College of Music in Warsaw. This cohesive five-movement work is characterised by numerous contrasts of sonority, dynamics and agogics, representing a fine example of Polish music for reed trio.
