Notes & Reviews:

After in-depth studies, cellist Julius Berger came to the conclusion that the arrangement of the String Trio Op. 3 of 1794 was created and published under the composer’s own eyes, in Beethoven’s immediate sphere of influence. The quality of the work—and of Beethoven—is apparent in this arrangement, which is magnificently played by Berger and Gallardo. For the mandolin sonatas, the original key of C minor is used in the arrangement for piano and violoncello, arranged by Berger. “Beethoven at his most elegant, they are miniature, refulgent jewels”—that was the opinion of Steven Isserlis, and it is also the opinion of Berger himself!
