Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In 1924 Poulenc was at work on his Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano. It was dedicated to Manuel de Falla, the Spanish composer who knew Paris well and also shared Poulenc’s London publisher. Completed at Cannes in 1926, it was, like all the music that occupied his thoughts for any length of time, a subject on which he kept his friends informed. He referred to the Trio in writing to André Schaeffner, André Cœuroy, Charles Koechlin and Igor Stravinsky, acknowledging the latter’s advice. The Trio, Poulenc’s first real success in the field of chamber music, retaining its youthful verve, was first played at the concert he gave with his friend Georges Auric in Paris on 2 May 1926.
