Partitur und Stimmen
This trio is also called "Children"s trio", because it was composed for the three children of pianist Margrit Webe in Switzerland. Those were the ones to play it first, too. The piece is technically very simple and the composer first did not agree upon printing. The Ricercare shows the names of the children (Thomas, Maria and Helen) and the name of the village, where the music was composed (Baech) in notes.
