Violin, Viola, Cello Trios

Mixed String Trio – new listing
Appalachian Tidbits - Mountain Songs arr. Hall
Difficulty: ME  OMEA Class: C  Publ. Code: 50702005  
This Trio can be effectively performed by a variety of instrumentations. Parts are included for violins, viola and cello. Songs from Appalachia are an important part of our musical heritage: Old Joe Clark, Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier and L’il Liza Jane. The key signature may look like A major, but when the flatted seventh is used it has a modal sound. The first and last songs are fiddle tunes; for contrast, a sad lyrical tune is sandwiched in between. Players and audiences will enjoy this trip to rural America.

Violin, Viola, Cello Trios
Bach Suite - Bach/Hall            Score sample
Difficulty: ME  OMEA Class: C  Publ. Code: 00447  
Three contrasting pieces are included in this suite of short pieces by Bach. Minuet, Gavotte and March. Keys are G major, G minor and D major and parts can all be played in first position. It is very tastefully scored for violin, viola and cello, but can also be performed by 2 violins and cello.

Early American Suite - American Folk Tunes/Hall            Score sample
Difficulty: ME  OMEA Class: C  Publ. Code: 00435  
This trio offers a lesson in American history and lots of fun in the process. Two hymn tunes are sandwiched in between four different fiddle tunes. The six song medley can be performed as two separate pieces of three songs each. It was originally written for 2 violins and cello, but also can be played with this same arrangement by violin, viola and cello. It is also available as a string quartet (00479), as a quintet (00436) and as a piece for full string orchestra (00478). Players and audiences will thoroughly enjoy this piece.

“OMEA Class” refers to the assigned difficulty rating on the Ohio Music Educators Association Required List.

Sound samples are provided for some of the arrangements on this site. These are produced as MP3 files, with links noted after those arrangements for which they are available. Many also provide a "short MP3" alternative for those with slower, dial-up connections. While all sound samples are fairly compact, the shorter versions will typically download four to five times faster than their fuller counterparts.

Score samples are also provided for some arrangements. These show the first page (and sometimes several pages) of the score, and are provided in PDF format. You will need to have the Adobe Reader installed to be able to read these files. If you are unsure if you have this capability, click on a score link and see what happens. If you cannot read the file, a free version of the Adobe Reader is available at www.adobe.com.
