Charlotte Seither - Composer



Initially, my starting point was the idea of abolishing the traditional functions of the instruments in the classical piano trio, where they resemble a pyramid with the piano providing the harmonic foundation, the cello translating it to the linear dimension, and the violin adding the vertical figuration. In contrast, I sought to replace the development of a synthetic process with other means. I decided to treat the two string instruments as equal partners that only form an overriding unity when fractured by the piano.
