In general, “trio” denotes a group of three solo instruments or voices (Randel 2003). The term is also used to describe a composition for such a group. The most common types of such compositions are the “piano trio”—piano, violin and cello—and the “string trio”—violin, viola and cello (Schwandt 2001). In vocal music, the term “terzet” is sometimes preferred to “trio” (McClymonds, Cook, and Budden 1992).

From the 17th century onward the word “trio” is used to describe a contrasting second or middle dance appearing between two statements of a principal dance, such as a minuet or bourée. This second dance was originally called a “trio” from the 17th-century practice of scoring it for three instruments, for example two oboes and bassoon. Later examples continued to be referred to as trios, even when they involved a larger number of parts (Randel 2003; Schwandt 2001).
