Triple-stranded DNA (also known as H-DNA or Triplex-DNA) is a rare form and almost non-existent in nature. Intramolecular triplex DNA is formed from duplex homopurine and homopyrimidine strands upon adding a complementary single strand.
HETK Trio (hetk – moment, instant in Estonian) is inspired by and pays tribute to the world famous Het Trio (Harrie Starreveld – flute, Harry Sparnaay – bass clarinet, René Eckhardt – piano) that was active in 1982–2006, performed all over the world and premiered over 180 new pieces. Fie Schouten (bass clarinet) and Tarmo Johannes (flute) studied respectively with Harry Sparnaay and Harrie Starreveld.
In part, HETK Trio tries to pass on the best pieces of their vast heritage; however, the ensemble is also interested in discovering and commissioning new compositions to extend the repertoire of the peculiar trio.
