Chamber Music Today posted Allégresse: Situated Talk and the Piano-Flute-Oboe Trio Repertoire:

Piano-flute-oboe (PFO) trios are a distinctive orchestration for chamber music. The texture is relatively thin, which lends extra transparency and vulnerability to the sonic palette.”

Allégresse Trio performs much of the PFO repertoire, including Quantz, Telemann, transcriptions of W.F. Bach and Rossini, plus trios by Madeleine Dring, Thea Musgrave, Jean-Michel Damase, Frank Martin, and William Grant Still.” Full Post
