What has been said about Classical Duos & Trios.      

Much has been written about classical duos & trios and their instruments. Here are some quotations:-

.It took Haydn a while to make his way into real string quartet composition: indeed, it is not known whether some of his early “duos & trios” were intended for just four players or were really quartet-symphonies for a small string orchestra and usually performed with clavicembalo. The first “String Quartet” by Mozart (K. 80)—whom we later find, at sixteen, waiting out rainy hours in a coach station on his third Italian journey, composing a “quartet” out of boredom—was certainly not yet a string quartet in our sense.
