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

It's overkill.

This is the most profound six-handed music I've ever heard wink :
