By Zoltán Székely
vonós hármasa op. 2
Moderato - Vivace ma non troppo - Moderato, poco adagio - Allegro vivace
On a spring afternoon in 1918, Hermann was on the same tram back home as Zoltán Kodály, a teacher who was just ten years his senior. Paul carried a string trio composed by his friend Zoltán Székely. Hanging out through the open window he spoke with Kodály. When they came to a stop, Hermann started to whistle a section from the piece. Just before getting off the tram, he impulsively handed Kodály the score. This must have made an impression; shortly thereafter, Székely and Hermann were invited to Kodály's home, started to study with him and it was the beginning of a mutual friendship.
