Description: Chameleon, for flute, 'cello, and piano, was written in 1980-81 and takes as its inspiration the remarkable adaptability of the chameleon to its surroundings. Its analogue in this piece is a motive, A-E-Bb-Gb, that is continuously present in various guises throughout the many changing moods of the trio.
