The Piano Trio

Its History, Technique, and Repertoire

Basil Smallman

A Clarendon Press Publication

The first study devoted solely to the piano trio, this book reviews the development of the trio in different countries within the context of general music history, and shows how it has reflected changes in style and technique from Mozart and Haydn to the avant-garde. Smallman focuses on the principal works in the trio repertoire, and provides clear analytical descriptions supplemented by musical examples.
