Notes & Reviews:

For twenty-five years now the Vienna Piano Trio has toured concert stages around the globe. In honor of the ensemble's anniversary, MDG is releasing a new recording of the two Trios op. 70 and the Kakadu Variations on this Super Audio CD's rich program: crystal clear, audiophile, and with the charm of a live performance captivating listeners from start to finish!

When Beethoven was asked why he had composed his two Trios op. 70 in 1809, he responded rather gruffly, "Because there is a lack of them." For his part, E. T. A. Hoffmann first discovered the "romanticist" Beethoven in these works. This is hardly surprising, given the fact that the three instruments shoot off like rockets, and this impetus charged with high suspense surges over into an energy-laden cello tone, which then magnificently introduces the grand theme.

A welcome task for the Vienna Piano Trio, which spreads enthusiasm with its impressive range of tone colors, dynamics, technical brilliance, and expressive will!
