In the 1770s, Wanhal had printed in Paris Six Trios for clarinet, bassoon (or two clarinets) and bass (cello). The unusual, almost unique scoring of these pieces makes them a valuable addition to the chamber or house music. They belong to the early literature for clarinet, although the instrument is not et treated in a specific way.

Parts are provided (per Wanhal) for performance as a trio of 2 clarinets and one bassoon or one clarinet and two bassoons.
