Description

This trio is perhaps unique among the 140-odd trios of the Graun brothers in that each movement begins with a theme in parallel thirds instead of the more usual imitative entries. The frequent use of parallel textures, as well as the shape of the melodic lines, gives the work a rather more French feel than in the usually more Italianate Graun trios. Although ideally suited to flutes, the work could also be played on oboes or violins.
