This little piece is a wonderfully harmonious and approchable trio, with just enough technical demands to keep the players on their toes, perhaps at a chapter meeting playing session. Listeners will be drawn into the piece as well, so it would be a nice addition to any concert program. This piece also illustrates perfectly the rewards of your fingers knowing their scales in all keys.
