The Trio in C Major, Op. 87 for Two Oboes and English horn is one of Beethoven’s greatest pieces of chamber music for wind instruments. Experienced oboists are sure to be familiar with this work, and likely have studied it and performed it many times. Beethoven wrote so beautifully and brilliantly for woodwinds. Audiences always love to hear it performed, and I never tire of performing or teaching it. Now, with my transcription for oboe, English horn, and bassoon, you can invite a bassoonist friend to join in the fun!

This Allegro movement (the first of four movements) is technically challenging (but not too difficult), and enjoyable to play and listen to, suitable for advanced students or professionals. Students will learn so much about phrasing, articulation, dynamics, balance, and expression from studying this piece; and the level of musicality in this work is suitable for a professional performance. It would work well in a chamber music recital or student recital. Duration is approximately 15
minutes (with repeats).

In order to facilitate page turns, I have made sure that a rest appears at the end of each odd-numbered page in each part (this will work if you lay out odd pages on the right and even pages on the left). I hope you will enjoy playing it as much as I have enjoyed arranging it. Please check out my other arrangements at:

    I have always loved this trio, and what a great idea to add a bassoon part! I love music by Beethoven. It is cool to see modern arrangers change the instrumentation to get different timbres. I also recommend this arranger's transcription of the second movement of this trio. I...

    would love to buy the third and fourth movements as well, if they are available.
