THE NORRIS STANLEY PIANOFORTE TRIO : NORRIS STANLEY (Violin); H. P. HOGARTH (Violoncello) ;
ARTHUR WOODALL (Pianoforte)
THERE are four Movements in the Trio, which was composed in three weeks in March, 1812, though it had been in the composer's mind some years earlier.
The FIRST is cheerful and bold, very clearly made out of two main tunes, with scarcely any subsidiary matter.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is a gay, jesting piece, a Scherzo. In the middle section an odd, creeping theme is set forth in fugal style, each instrument having a cut at it in turn. Then the first section is repeated, and in the Coda (tail-piece) we have recollections of the chief themes of both rtpp.t.innfl.
The THIRD MOVEMENT is a set of five Variations on a simple, appealing theme.
The LAST MOVEMENT is a Rondo in which two main tunes alternate, with (after the second appearance of the opening one) an episode of new matter in the middle. Then the two main tunes reappear, and a Coda at full speed exhilaratingly winds up.
(1) Rather slow, then quick; (2) Slow, in a singing style ; (3) Hungarian Rondo

The words run thus:—
Though my carriage be but careless,
Though my looks be of the sternest,
Yet my passions are compareless ;
When I love, I love in earnest.
Xo, my wits are not so wild
But a gentle soul may yoke me ;
Xor my heart so hard compiled
But it melts, if love provoke me.
