This trio is one of several serial compositions written in the late sixties early seventies. This was the standard 'academic' style and several professors of music then wrote 'how to do' books on serial composition. It uses two twelve-note series and has a vague tonality of E. Bars 43 to 47 have difficult rhythm, and the duplet rit in bars 71-73 is fiendish to play accurately, (though accuracy is not what was necessarily intended). In view of this it is best for each player to have a 3 page score than to try and play from parts.
