Definition

A piano trio is a chamber music ensemble comprising of three instruments; the most common form comprises of a piano, violin and cello.

The form, which developed throughout the classical period, initially had a 3 movement structure. A fast movement, a slow movement and a final fast movement. This is the same overall structure as both a sonata and a concerto of that period.

Other combinations of instruments can be found, but this is less common that the typical piano, violin and cello grouping.
