Notes & Reviews:

Haydn's misgivings about Beethoven's third piano trio were not entirely unfounded: symphonic in conception, it was a breakthrough work - Beethoven's first masterpiece and eventually one of his most popular chamber pieces - and retains its power to amaze to this day. His 'Symphony No. 2' also broke through Classical conventions, a scherzo replacing the customary minuet. In the composer's own arrangement for piano trio it loses none of its impact. The youthful 'Allegretto in E flat' is, in effect, a minuet without the expected trio section.
