Topic: Beethoven trio, Op 87

Is anyone aware of an arrangement of the Beethoven trio Op87 (originally for 2 oboes and English horn) for flute/clarinet/bassoon?

Thanks!

I am currently coaching a group just as above, but they are playing the arrangement for oboe, clarinet and bassoon.  The flutist is playing the oboe part very well with an occasional octave displacement.  It sounds very good.

Thanks guys!

I just ordered it from Trevco-Varner.  I'll have to remember the trick of searching for oboe/clarinet/bassoon as well as flute/clarinet/bassoon.

Re: Beethoven trio, Op 87

Speaking of Beethoven trios - I'm wondering what folks think about the Beethoven Trio in G for Flute, Bassoon and Piano. I've often wondered if this piece was actually written by Beethoven. Perhaps the musicologists on this list might have some input - the bassoon part seems so strange and not at all typical of the usual Beethoven bassoon writing. Thanks in advance for any future response on this.  Jim
