"III: Le bassin de L'eure au Havre" is the third installment of my three-part suite "three pieces of Eugene Boudin." Like the first two movements, the work extrapolates on a series of pitch cells that reflect the imagery of Boudin's settings — vast landscapes are developed within a peaceful stoicism, and one must be attentive in this particular movement to keep in mind Boudin's affinity to illustrating multiple iterations of the same setting: namely, the port of Le Havre. A featured out-of-band trombone soloist develops the pre-assigned pitch-cells into melodic and harmonic landscapes that familiarize the listener with the constructional material that parallels the eponymous works.
