Piano Trios by : Eva Badura-Skoda : Franz Schubert
One needn't hesitate a second in assigning Schubert's two piano trios to his best works. Both were written no later than 1827; hence one year before the composer's death; and are typical of the works of his maturity: abounding in blissful melodies paired with formative power and profound depths of expressiveness. Whereas Schubert had sold the E flat major Trio op. 100 D 929 to the Leipzig publisher Probst (it appeared just after Schubert's death; however); the B flat major Trio op. 99 D 898 did not make it to publication during Schubert's lifetime.The Adagio in E flat major op. post. 148 D 897; which is reproduced in the Appendix and which has become known as Notturno; was most likely originally planned as the slow movement of the B flat major Trio. With its expressiveness ascending to darkest despair; Schubert possibly considered it as unsuited for publication.It was not published until 1846; in the Appendix of this volume one will find Schubert's first attempt in this genre; which he wrote at the age of 15 in Summer 1812.
