Hello, Donni - Good question! The violin 3 part (of which you get three copies in treble clef) is almost entirely in unison with the viola part (of which you get five copies in alto clef). There are only a few notes where the viola part jumps down an octave for a note or two, and a few short phrases where it is lower by a different interval. They are essentially substitute parts, or can be played together in a larger ensemble, which is why only the viola line is shown in the score. The Cello and Bass parts are similar, and nearly match each other and the left hand of the piano. So, for your intents and purposes, the three violin parts will work nicely as a trio, but you will probably want the cello, bass, or piano accompaniment to be played at the same time as well. I hope this answers all of your questions!
