THE MARY ABBOTT PIANOFORTE Trio : FRANK
VENTON (Violin), HARRY STANIER ('Cello),
MARY ABBOTT (Pianoforte)
IN Mendelssohn's Two Trios there is much to admire-in particular their sincerity, tunefulness and good, clean workmanship.
The D Minor Trio (his Op. 49).has four Movements. The First is suavely hurried and well marked in its three-beat rhythm. The Second is more tranquil, and very melodious, as it goes steadily along in four-square time. The deft Scherzo follows, and then the last Movement, the most characteristic of the four, opens with a rhythm that is seldom absent for long. It is tapped in chords or sung in melodies, now loud, now soft, all through the Movement.
