Please email us with info about any triets by living (or very nearly living) composers - we'd be very grateful. We are hoping that by providing links to scores and recordings, this page will be a resource for all potential triet performers. Please also see our Piano Triets information page for composing and performing tips.

Heinz Benker (1921-2000) - Marcia Festiva (1997), 3 minutes.
German. The existing MARCIA FESTIVA was created in 1997 from a call for scores sent out from the Baynov Piano Ensembles. The term “festiva” (festive) is not to be literally taken but with a wink and a smile on the lips. This march shows, with its rhythmic disposition, a distinct relationship to jazz. This melody does not want to be marched! It wants to be danced! The speed can be accelerated according to taste.
