“For the contemporary composer of serious music, the most gratifying creative events are those in which one is privileged to write for virtuoso musicians at the forefront of their profession, whose playing one admires and is familiar with and who are also good friends. Understanding this mind set, one can grasp the intrigue, pleasure, and excitement I felt when Kurt Briggs asked me to compose a piece using the division idea for the piano trio.” – Merrill Clark, Composer
