So when 2 people play on the piano is call a piano duet, but what about 1 piano six hands? I thought a piano trio is for piano, violin and cello. Is there a special name for 3 people playing at the same time?

thanks

But seriously folks ha ....I'm with BDB.
It's overkill.

Answer to Dspiano: I think it's just what you said: Piano, 6 hands

Even old Rach was inspired to get in on the act:
