Hrm. Thought this work had been recorded already, but I guess not- his piano trios are the chamber works I may have been thinking of, it seems they have been.
BNF catalog entry attributes this work to Bériot fils (Charles-Wilfrid Bériot) (given the Gevaert/Taffanel/orbit connection and that Taffanel was the dedicatee of a flute sonata by the younger Bériot, maybe so; also- late publication date; favors the piano I think rather than Charles-Auguste's violin, no?... -- ) and gives a (>1870, note) publication date of 1881 (and of course does not give a composition date of 1841 - but where does that come from, anyway?) - Schissel (1881, not 1878; in 1878 Hamelle was still in transition from Maho, apparently. One will, in any case, find no Hamelle items in BdlF 1878 but a few from J. Maho still.)
And again, an 1841 date of composition would establish Charles-Auguste as the composer, as too early for his son Charles-Wilfrid- if only, if only there were some hint of proof (as of now, not even evidence. or even more than bold and bald assertion) for the claim. I don't see a reason not to remove it (the claim, I mean, not the piece.) - ES
