It sounds nice and pleasant.  The ending of the trio was a bit abrupt, and I generally prefer more chromatic harmonies, especially after you establish expectation - for instance, on a third repeat of a phrase, rather than repeating the harmony straight, maybe augmenting it or make it a borrowed chord (from another scale) to surprise the listener otherwise it becomes a bit predictable.  But how much or how often to do this is a judgement for you.  If you overdo it, then it becomes the expectation and perhaps staying diatonic is what will keep the ear engaged if you follow me.  Very nice job!

The performance and the 2 compositions sound very good. I like the way piano was played. As for the compositions, how about more variations in chord/harmonic progressions? How about using some substitute chords as well as suspended chords? Also how about more rhythmic diversity across the instruments as well as across the sections? As of now, it largely sounds like the instruments play together.
Nice and likable works and professionally performed.
