The shrill, overactive sound of the classical trio (clarinet-violin-piano) supports the wild, hysterical personality of the famous Chekhov character, Natasha.
Forgive me! Forgive me! You’re tired.
She has been with us for thirty years.
Either I don’t understand, or you simply don’t want
to understand me.
She does nothing but sleep… or sit about.
