Abstract or Description:

“In Honour of Alfred Schnittke (AGSCH)” Trio for
violin, viola and violoncello (1986) was by coincidence
written after the health problems that
nearly ended the life of the great Russian composer
in 1985. The title of the work refers to the
letters that make the musical expression of his
name possible (including the patronymic Garrievitsj):
A G S C H. Each one of the three movements
is marked by a particular sonorous climate based
on a very complex notation. The performance of
this oeuvre constitutes a formidable task for any
musician.
