The theme of the first movement of the of the trio is introduced by the violin playing a lyrical melody of four measures. The melody is then imitated by the cello. To make the trio a true one, the piano takes on the theme. This movement is based on interplay between instruments of various combinations. The second movement is made up of tonal colors.The piano introduces them by placid strokes of chords. The singing quality of the violin adds great color to the composition. The sonorous melodic line of the cello produces smooth quality of sound. The third movement is reminiscent of a child's carousel. It is playful and full of various whimsical rhythms.
