String Quartet - Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello
A Quartet is the preferred choice musically. Most music is written with a quartet in mind so renditions sound rich and balanced. A quartet can also play slightly louder than a trio. Finally a quartet is arranged in a half circle fashion so is appealing visually.
String Trio - Violin 1, Violin 2, Cello
A Trio is a quartet without the viola. A viola is like a big violin and frequently adds only harmonic richness and depth to the sound, the important melodic parts being carried on the violins. Hence for many pieces a viola can be absent without much appreciable difference in sound quality (don't tell that to viola players though!). A Trio uses less space than a quartet but cannot play as loud.
N.B. Occasionally a string duo (violin 1, Cello) or solo instrument may suit a functions logistics. For example in a recital situation, where a "wandering" violinist is required, or where performance space is greatly restricted. Generally though a quartet or trio is advisable.
