Description

dedicated to William Jahrmarkt;

Trio no. 1 (1957) [violin, ‘cello, & piano] — Helps was
legitimately proud of this work, considering it the crown of his ‘early’
period. Endowed with a Bartók-like density and expressiveness, the
first movement, marked ‘Mesto,’ links a series a taut gestures towards a
almost unbearable sense of expectation. The second movement, ‘Molto
marcato, molto allegro’ explodes this accumulated energy, splintering
the music outward into scurrying figures. The final movement ‘Maestoso’
offers an impressively original valediction — after a powerful fanfare,
strange statements are formed by the instruments, as if reaching or
grasping.
