DíIndyís Trio op. 29 was his first, published when he was 36 years of age.† His other Trio Op. 89 was written in 1929 two years before his death. The violin part was included at the request of Hamelle who thought the works would receive more attention with both parts available. It is considered to be DíIndyís first mature work and is greatly influenced in style and form by his teacher Cesar Franck. DíIndy performed the work throughout his life and utilized it as an example in his chamber classes at the Schola Cantorum.† The work is still performed today and there are several recordings available.
