Grove lists H.508 as having three possible instrumentations, and gives it the title "Trio". CPE Bach wrote several works that are listed as Trios, but that have flexible scoring, one option being one instrument with keyboard; the right hand of the keyboard is the second melodic line. There is an interesting discussion of the flexibility of scoring in these works by Steven Zohn at http://www.cpebach.org/cpeb/pdfs/introductions/II-3-2-Intro.pdf;jsessionid...
