Listen to an excerpt of Triptych:
Who’s playing? Matt Haimovitz + Uccello
David Sanford writes in the liner notes to the Oxingale recording:
Triptych is an octet composed in 2010 for Matt Haimovitz and Uccello. The title refers in part to works by my friend, artist Chris Pouler, whose works occasionally feature likenesses of friends, relatives, musicians and composers in surreal, non-traditional, and/or symbolic settings. Two of Pouler’s musical interests, jazz pianists Vijay Iyer and Nik Bärtsch, are the more overt stylistic inspirations for this work.
