Petit Trianon - Programs

The Trio literature of the early 18th century forms the centre of Petit Trianon's repertoire. Many works were composed parallel to the traditional piano trio with violin, cello and piano, which actually favoured the flute over the violin. Joseph Haydnís "flute trios" are probably best known. However, J. N. Hummel, J. L. Dussek, I. Pleyel, Hoffmeister or Danzi were also inspired by this arrangement to write musical master pieces. Petit Trianonís main aim is to awaken those works from their beauty sleep with a kiss.
In addition to this, the ensemble also dedicates itself to the well researched area of the baroque flute literature, where the three musicians, particularly in such programmes, present themselves as equal members of a trio; especially as the violoncello and the cembalo occasionally come out of their continuo role and can then be heard on their own or as duo.
