Springburst (2007) for piano trio is dedicated to composer Gwyneth Walker on her 60th
birthday. It was composed for "Gwyneth Walker: A Celebration of the Music Makers", a
birthday music festival at Chandler Hall, Braintree, Vermont in October 2007, where it was
performed by Trio Tulsa.
The work is a brief and vibrant work with distinctly "American" characteristics. The music
reflects Walker's energetic personal and musical personality.
