Reviews

Well this version goes to prove that the phrase less is more isn’t always true. This trio version would be useful if you have only got two friends but otherwise I much prefer the one for quartet. The soprano and alto bounce off each other for most of the piece with the third part trying to fill in the harmonic gaps. Like any threesome someone always feels left out. Once again there was an emptiness and lack of atmosphere. This resulted in a piece that should be effervescent and flamboyant feeling a tad self-conscious.
