USEFUL CHAMBER MUSIC
This List contains music casually encountered over a number of years and which has proved useful.

ORGANISING CHAMBER MUSIC IN GENERAL: Smaller combinations are  commercially better. Diversity of sound is very important. The Wind quintet can be somewhat dull because the sound is so much the same. Tonal variety using smaller groupings would help toward success. Remember that five players are always going to be more difficult to schedule for a rehearsal, let alone a concert; smaller combinations are more practical and costs the organisers less money too!

GOOD COMBINATIONS: flute, oboe, and keyboard; or 2 flutes and piano (less interesting, but still good). Flute, oboe & piano has the best repertoire and includes over 100 pieces for two instruments and continuo from the 18th century. Other examples: 2 flutes, flute and violin, 2 violins, flute and oboe, 2 recorders, etc. Basic repertoire would include 18th century Trio Sonatas (and these can be quite varied in style); jolly 19th cent bravura duos, Doppler &c. and some 20th cent. pieces. Many late 16th and 17th cent. pieces for 2 instruments can be a rewarding played on any two instruments. The keyboard is the anchor.
* Useful Chamber Music is divided into:
Two flutes and piano,(or flute, oboe and piano)
Three flutes and piano
Four flutes and piano
Five flutes and piano
Trio sonatas
Other chamber music with keyboard
Other chamber music without piano
Flute and strings, with or without piano
Duets, Trios, Quartets, for Flutes, and more.
