Trio Sirènes (Marcia McHugh, flute; Karin Brown, viola; and Jacqueline Pollauf, harp) performs Hannah Lash's (b. 1981) Three Shades Without Angles, composed in 2014. The piece alternates between relentless driving sections and quieter spacious sections. Lash's primary instrument is the harp, and she uses the instrument fully, including a section in the middle of the piece where arpeggios start on the lowest string of the harp, climb to the top string and return continuously, making the piece both physically and musically demanding to play.
