David Matthews’s String Trio… packed four elegant movements into ten minutes. The Scherzo was a superb illusion: three instruments sounded like six in the process of pitting frantic off-beat chords against long lines. The jewel was in the slow movement: straight off the English elegy shelf, but beautifully dissolved into vibrato-less chords and harmonics.
