Raimundo Penaforte describes An Eroica Trio: trio is a generic term for a composition employing three instruments. To me An Eroica Trio is a composition scored for Adela Peña, Sara Sant’Ambrogio and Erika Nickrenz.
Astor is a movement that resembles the rhythmical aspects of tango music. Despite its connection with Piazzola, the title has no hidden intentions to turn this movement into a traditional tango.
Maurice was inspired by the passacaglia movement in Ravel’s Trio. Again, there are no planned similarities with Ravel’s music. The name here functions as a title only.
Capiba is the only movement that bears a resemblance to the composers music whose name is given here… and the reason is: on a beautiful Sunday morning I found myself seated in front of my computer, with a cup of coffee in my hands and my uninvited gray and white cat on my lap. As the computer downloaded the art section of my hometown newspaper, I could not believe what my eyes were seeing on the screen. There was a picture of Northeast Brazilian composer Capiba, seated on a chair with a cup of coffee in his hands and a gray and white cat on his lap.
