Beethoven: Trio Op.87
Beethoven's Trio Op.87 was composed in 1794, for the somewhat unusual instrumentation of two oboes and english horn. It was arranged for various other instrumentations during Beethoven's lifetime, including a version which he approved for publication, for two violins and viola. We are delighted to share the work with clarinetists in this new transcription for three soprano clarinets.

Haydn: Four 'London' Trios
Haydn's lovely 'London' Trios, so called because they were written during one of the composer's stays in London, were originally composed for two flutes and 'cello. The first and third of the Trios are each three movements in length, with the slow-fast-slow arrangement common of the period. The second and fourth Trios are each just one movement. The four pieces can be performed as a group, but also stand alone just as convincingly.

Haydn: Trios, Volumes 1 & 2
Haydn's string trios are ideally suited to young players and students of all ages. Although they require intelligent musicianship, they are short in duration and do not place any great technical demands on any of the three players. From Haydn's total output of more than 20 string trios, we have chosen eight which are well-suited for transcription for clarinet trio.

Mozart: Nocturnes
This volume provides a lovely set of six simple trios for two clarinets and bass clarinet, pulling from the beautiful language of late Mozart. In the 1780s, Mozart composed six short works for three voices (SSB or STB) accompanied by three clarinets and/or basset horns, which doubled the vocal lines. This arrangement presents just the instrumental lines as a trio for two clarinets and bass clarinet. Original keys and range are maintained throughout.
