Notes & Reviews:

Trio Haydn's originality is particularly evident in such pieces as these trios, conceived primarily for musical friends to play together. The sheer distinctiveness and the accomplishment of his writing is readily and inescapably apparent in this music. The outstanding Grieg Trio reflect every nuance in their spirited performances. The works here recorded show Haydn's increasing attention to the form at the time of his two historic London visits and afterwards. These visits were crucial not only in widening the composer's reputation but also in alerting him to the respect and renown his comprehensive mastery could win him in the wider musical world. Grieg Trio was founded in 1987 by Vebjrn Anvik (piano), Slve Sigerland (violin) and Ellen Margrete Flesj (cello). They have been engaged by Wigmore Hall and Berlin Konzerthaus for their series "Beethoven", consisting of Beethoven's Piano Trios combined with new commissions from contemporary composers. Grieg Trio has recorded works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak, Smetana, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Martin and Bloch for Simax Classics, EMI and Virgin to great critical acclaim.
