Detailed Instrumentation: 
Flute Trio
This trio may also be performed on any other equal treble clef instruments.  Benoit Tranquille Berbiguier (1782 - 1838) was a famous flute player.  He was intended for the law, but the love of music being too strong for him, he ran away from home and entered himself at the Concervatoire in Paris.  As a composer, he was very fertile in music for his instrument, both solo and accompanied - 11 concertos, many fatasias and variations, 140 duos, 32 trios, with quartets and symphonies.  All three of Berbiguier's Trio for Flutes, Op. 51 are available from the publisher (edited by Elwyn Wienandt).  18 Exercises by Berbiguier (edited by Judith Thomas) is also available.
