Description: Nothing could tell the effect of the war on Ireland than the difference between the life-affirming confidence of the Phantasie Trio of 1908 and the tragic, intensely emotional second trio from 1917. The much longer, four-movement third trio (1938) adds a lyrical slow movement to a withdrawn clarinet trio of 1912-13 to produce an effect of youthful inspiration and mature craftsmanship. The short violin/piano pieces, all from before the Great War, showcase Ireland's melodic gifts. Gould Piano Trio.
