    Hi, I'm looking for music for the odd combination of piano, bass and violin. I suppose if it's written for cello instead of bass would be fine too, I could make that work. I'd prefer something that featured the piano not just as accompaniment.

    The only idea I've had so far is subbing bass for cello in any number of piano trios. Anybody done this with success?

    Ideas? Arrangements?

    There's always the Bottesini Grand Duo, too.

    Thanks Neil, good ideas, maybe a little on the modern virtuosic side, but stuff I never even considered.

    Know of a sample recording of "Tree frogs" available online?

    Find a workable piano trio. That would feature all the instruments... maybe not always on their own, but as a musical unit at the least.

    Any baroque violin sonata, with you and the pianist doing the continuo part.

    Yes, this is what I was thinking, to give sort of an even musical share to all the instruments. Got a suggestion? There's a lot of piano trios out there, I suppose I'd go for one that's not going to take months to prep.
