We'd like this page to be as complete as possible a list of all contemporary works for piano triet. 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.
