Notes & Reviews:

A double anniversary: the Vienna Piano Trio, celebrating its twentieth, pays tribute to the great Joseph Haydn two hundred years after his death with an exquisite recording of four piano trios from his middle and late compositional periods, including the highly popular "Gypsy Trio" in G major. The Viennese public yearned for quality alternatives to the string quartet, and Haydn filled the order with his Trio in E minor in 1789, even prior to his trips to England. His publishers quite literally snatched it from his hands before the ink was dry. What nobody grasped at the time, however, was that the composer had now left behind the entertaining tone of his earlier years. He had created an extraordinarily contrast-rich and impassioned work clearly reflecting the influence of his symphonies.

BBC Music Magazine
With astutely judged tempos and gracefully elegant phrasing throughout, these highly polished interpretations manage at the same time to convey an almost spontaneous enjoyment of the music.
