Trio Sirènes (Marcia McHugh, flute; Karin Brown, viola; and Jacqueline Pollauf, harp) performs Elegiac Trio, by Arnold Bax (1883-1953). Although certainly an impressionistic piece with its sweeping lines and the many colors Bax explores, it is written, surprisingly, in a simple 4/4 meter. Each instrument is featured virtuosically throughout the piece. The harp begins and ends the work, and also introduces a contrasting middle section.
