 The Trio in CMajor, Op. 87 for Two Oboes and English horn is one of Beethoven’s greatestpieces of chamber music for wind instruments. Experienced oboists are sure to be familiar with this work, and likelyhave studied it and performed it many times. Beethoven wrote so beautifully andbrilliantly for woodwinds, and I wish he had written more chamber music forwinds!  Audiences always love to hear thispiece performed, and I never tire of performing or teaching it. Now, with mytranscription for oboe, English horn, and bassoon, you can invite a bassoonistfriend to join in the fun!

This Adagio cantabilemovement (the second of four movements) is beautiful, soulful, andmelodious.  It is enjoyable to play andto listen to, suitable for advanced students or professionals. Studentswill learn so much about phrasing, articulation, dynamics, balance, andexpression from studying this piece; and the level of musicality in this workis suitable for a professional performance. It would work well in a chamber music recital or student recital, and isa good length and seriousness for church offertory music.  Duration is approximately 4.5 minutes.

I hope you will enjoy playing it as much as Ihave enjoyed arranging it.  Please checkout my other arrangements at:

    I also bought the first movement of this trio from this arranger, and they are both great. I wish the third and fourth movements were available, too. It is a great trio to begin with, and so fun now that there is a bassoon part, too. I love Beethoven! He...

    wrote so nicely for woodwinds, and it is cool to have a new spin on his works.
