Sergei Taneyev's Trio Op. 21. Arranged for mixed Flute Trio.
This trio, originally for two Violins and Viola, is cast in the standard four movement form. The first is busy and intricate, the second is the standard minuet and trio, the third is a lyrical slow movement, and the fourth is a lively finale. Taneyev's love of counterpoint is evident throughout the whole piece. The first Flute part is complicated and needs nimble fingers, the lower parts are easier but still a challenge.
