  • 2 published piano trios, 2 unpublished

(Both published trios recorded some years back commercially by the Arensky Trio.)

The Musical Times notes a performance later in 1879 (September 12, in Leipzig, at the Conservatorium) in its October 1 1879 issue, p.542. (Another issue in the same 1879 volume notes a performance of (his first) piano quintet.)
