Overview

Over the centuries, the piano trio has gained a repertoire of exceptional size and richness; works written for this genre include some of the greatest of all chamber works.

Smallman focuses on the principal works in the trio repertoire, and provides clear analytical descriptions supplemented by musical examples.
