TRIO SONATA for flute, viola, and harp is a four-movement work which combines polytonality and classical music structures with the following “non-western” melodies in the following movements : (i) “Aš pasejau linelius” (transcribed from the compact disc, Lituanie – le pays des chansons, Ocora-Radio France); “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny” (James Bland); (ii) Menuet melody by Antonio Sacchini; (ii) theme from the second movement of the “Emperor” string quartet by Joseph Haydn; and (iv) “Shto mi e Milo” – a traditional Macedonian folk melody.
