Written in 1795 for two oboes and a cor anglais, this four movement trio works splendidly on the different sized saxes. In four movements: a fast 1st movement, a slow and lyrical 2nd movement, a Minuetto that is really a Scherzo marked Allegro molto and finishing with a finale marked Presto. All Beethoven’s stylistic traits are here, and all parts are interesting and rewarding to play. Not technically challenging, although some fast tonguing is required, particularly in the finale. Players of grade 5 standard and upwards should be able to gain much from this piece.
