Description: In a world of piano pieces being orchestrated or orchestral pieces being arranged for solo piano, this offering in the Saint-Saëns centenary year provides a rather unusual form of transcription - for piano trio. The more interesting of the two is that of the Rameau where Saint-Saëns writes out in full what Rameau could only imply in an original for harpsichord accompanied by flute/violin or viol/second violin.
