Instrumentation: String Trio
Little is known about Faber, except that he was a 17th century amateur musician. However, these three dance tunes are delightful pieces to serve as a basis for this short suite. All three call for independent rhythmic playing, and lie extremely well for string instruments. In addition to performance by three violins it is equally good for mixed string trios with optional parts for both viola and cello playing the 3rd part.
