About the String Trio

We’ve had an overwhelming interest in our other ensembles – Premiere Trio and Premiere Duo. Maybe you feel that a string quartet would be too powerful a sound for your event or the space is slightly limited. The String Trio is made up of violin, viola and cello so you have the same range of sound as a string quartet but with one less instrument so all registers are covered. We have a large repertoire for all combinations. Our trio repertoire is basically the same as the quartet (which you can find on our website) with a couple of exceptions but most of the pieces work really well for the trio. Thanks to our research in obtaining music and our own special arrangements we have a large repertoire for these ensembles.

If you had a particular piece in mind that’s not on our list we can look into finding it or making a string trio arrangement for you. We are experienced arrangers and most pieces will work well for any combination.
