Suggestions for a flute, violin, and cello piece.Repertoire: We need some help finding a trio piece to play.
From Vitalis Im
My cellist friend and I have, most recently, performed the Mendelssohn Piano Trio in dm. It would be nice if our next piece was at around that level of difficulty.
From Raphael KlaymanI can't think of anything originally written for that combo - especially to compare to the Mendelssohn. But for gig purposes there is a clever series of arrangements - "Music for 2", "Music for 3", etc. This includes a set for 2 treble instruments and one bass, which will work for your combo.

It works best for the flute to take the 1st part as its lowest note, I believe, is middle C, and it doesn't project well in its low register, even though it can get a really nice and sultry sound there.
From Nicky PaxtonGiven that instrumentation in the baroque era was more fluid than in later times, you can play baroque triosonatas on flute, violin & cello. There are, of course, loads of these.

From Andrew VictorCheck out the Handel "Kammertrios." With my former piano trio, we did use one of the Kammertrios in a program that also included one of the Mendelssohn trios and (I think) a Mozart.

Borodin trio for 2 violins and cello:
Yes lots of baroque stuff. Some of Bach's Goldberg variations; imslp has an arrangement for 3 or 4 recorders that has a number of suitable variations for your combo.
