Piano Trios - Volume II 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 second volume contains the two Piano Trios op. 70 and the Trio op. 97; as well as the Variations on the song “Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu” op. 121a. The nickname “Geistertrio” (Ghost Trio) of the Trio op. 70 no. 1 stems; as usual; not from Beethoven but was given to the piece no doubt because of the spooky; mysterious sound of the slow movement.
The Archduke Trio op. 97 was named after its dedicatee Archduke Rudolph and is undisputedly Beethoven's most important composition of this kind. With a duration of over 45 minutes; it is also his longest piano trio. Though written in 1810/11; it was not published until 1816.
