Work Overview

The four-movement Piano Trio in E minor - "The Heart" - was written for the Streeton Trio in 2013. The opening Drammatico movement is in sonata form, with an extended development over which the principal theme progressively shifts by a beat, finally coming full cycle when the recapitulation section arrives. Religioso is a contemplative movement of hope. The restless Poco Agitato movement generally proceeds in hushed tones, only occasionally breaking into loud outbursts. In the final movement - Inquieto - the feeling of restlessness continues although now in a more dramatic fashion, tempered by a lyrical and optimistic second subject. The principal theme from the opening movement now returns as a tranquil coda that ultimately banishes this restlessness and closes the work. In a similar fashion to the nicknames assigned to many of Haydn's symphonies, the name for "The Heart" comes from a particular musical figuration in the work - in this case, the beating accompaniment rhythm in the middle of the slow Religioso movement - rather than from a particular programme or story associated with the piece.
