Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Composed in 1798, a few years after he settled in Vienna, Beethoven's Gassenhauer (‘popular song') Trio gained this nickname from its set of variations on Pria ch'io l'impegno from Weigl's comic opera Il Corsaro. It opens with a finely crafted sonata-form Allegro con brio, followed by an Adagio based on his own Piano Sonata Op. 49, No. 2. The Clarinet Trio, Op. 38, published in 1803, is Beethoven's own stylish transcription of his extraordinarily popular Septet, Op. 20 (1799). Volumes 1 (8557723), 2 (8557724) and 3 (8570255) are also available.

"AThe group plays with thorough professionalism and artistic commitment, meeting all the challenges of the arrangement with great technical assurance, wonderful phrasing, exquisite tonal beauty, and superb collaborative musicianship. They are also strikingly flexible, whether it is producing the full sound of a large romantic ensemble or invoking the delicacy and intimacy of Vienese classicism...They go after the fire and sentiment that lurk beneath the young composer's Haydnesque touch. Among the infinite recordings of the Gassenhauer, this one stands out."-American Record Guide

Reviews

a fraud
these "piano" trios are the clarinet trios recorded before by Naxos and the major work is the transcription of the Beethoven Septet.it is not honest to call the same transcription a clarinet trio and then a piano trio. make up your mind, Naxos, and don't try to trick us.
