Abstract/Description: The typical college or university string department includes more violin students than lower string students. For a chamber music coordinator to assign all violin students to chamber groups, they must either assign violists and violoncellists to multiple quartets apiece, or look outside the string quartet repertoire. This creates a natural demand for string chamber works that include three or more violins. However, major composers wrote few works for these ensembles, and works written by lesser composers can be difficult to find and are of inferior quality. To make matters worse, few references describe works for these ensembles. This treatise addresses the lack of reference material on string chamber works including three or more violins by providing an annotated bibliography of twenty-three available works for ensembles ranging in size from trios for three violins to quintets for string quartet with an added third violin. The annotations describe each work's availability, technical difficulties, and ensemble and stylistic content. This assists students and coaches in finding appropriate material for a string chamber ensemble that includes three or more violinists.
