Piano Trios - Volume I by : Gunter Raphael : Ludwig van Beethoven
In the classical era; and far into the 19th century; piano trios were what we might call “fashion accessories”. It is thus no coincidence that Beethoven; following in the footsteps of Haydn and Mozart; took up this genre and created altogether 13 piano trios of his own.
This first volume contains the three Piano Trios op. 1; the very first works of all which Beethoven deemed publishable and deserving of an opus number. This was followed by the Trio op. 11 for clarinet or violin; cello and piano (“Gassenhauer”). Beethoven drew a great deal of attention to himself when he presented the three Trios op. 1 to the public (including Joseph Haydn) probably in August 1795; at a soirée given by Prince Lichnowsky. They have remained precious exemplars of their genre to this day.
