Set of Parts:
The work is a short, lyrical piece where an outsider [the oboe] joins the group [a string trio] and adds to their dialogue. At first the newcomer is treated with a mixture of suspicion and agitation, but eventually is made welcome.
The oboe is invited to share the musical theme that has been established which he then proceeds to embellish and adorn. He leads the harmonic changes that result in the theme being heard in many different keys. He then introduces a new theme. The excitement grows and leads to a climax.
A peaceful coda re-establishes the original theme and all ends harmoniously among the integrated quartet.

Melancholic in tone and with the finest dynamic and timbral shadings.
Dr. Jürgen Schaarwächter, www.Klassik.com,8/10/2013
Musgrave writes gorgeous melodies, and the theatricality of the piece served to underscore, rather than distract from, its inherent musicality.
