"Trio for Piano, Cello, and Clarinet"

Instruments: Piano, Cello, Clarinet

Feel: Relaxed, Calming, Somber

More contemplative than outright depressing. Tempo is highly variable, so don't count on it if you have to synch to something. I didn't know there was a tradition of writing for this instrumentation. It works very well.
