I remembered another beautiful work: the Piano Trio No. 1. This is a must hear for fans of this composer. The slow movement is achingly moving. And Kyle is right about Wirén's ability to be succinct in his works, and this trio is a proof of it. I hadn't appreciated this composer before, but now things are changing for good!

Thanks for bringing it to my attention; I haven’t heard it yet. Not many mid-20th century composers wrote piano trios/quartets/quintets, so it’s always great to find more examples!
