Diabelli Project 141 - Wind Trio

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

This week's flash composition was another wind trio. I started with a simple idea -- an interval of a third (E-G) and just kind of watched what happened. Rhythmic development started to happen in the 6th measure. If time hadn't run out, I would have continued expanding the original motif. And this may well be a sketch I return to in the near future.

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
