Piano Trios - Volume III by : Friedhelm Klugmann : Ludwig van Beethoven
In the Classical period; and well into the 19th century; piano trios were something of a musical fashion accessory. There was thus good reason for Beethoven also to engage with the genre; following the example set by Haydn and Mozart. He left 13 piano trios in all. The works contained in Volume III almost all present a few peculiarities: opus 44 is also not a complete trio; for instance; but consists of only one single variation movement! WoO 37; written while Beethoven was still in Bonn; is striking for its scoring (piano; flute and bassoon). He wrote WoO39 for Maximiliane; youngest daughter of the Brentano family; “to encourage her piano playing.” Op. 38 is an arrangement of the Septet op. 20 for piano; clarinet and violoncello; and the last piece has come down to us only in one sketchbook from Beethoven's Bonn period. None of these works has the weight of Beethoven's major piano trios; nevertheless; they remain witnesses to his supreme artistry.
