August 19, 2006 at 05:50 AM · Hey guys,

I was wondering if any of you could recommend any trios that have easy piano parts. I have two cousins living in my area, one who's 26 and plays the cello (he played for U of Illinois), and another who's 8 and played piano for two years. The difficulty of the cello & violin part does not matter so much, but something that would take it easy on the piano would be great. I would love to play the beautiful Mendelssohn trios, especially the 2nd movement of op.49 like on Julia Fischer's site, but the piano part is just too difficult. Any recommendations?
