Notes & Reviews:

Composed during his 'middle period', Beethoven's trio 'Opus 70 Piano Trios' are dramatic works full of structural and thematic innovation. The striking 'Ghost Trio', so called after its slow movement of eerie and somber tremolos in the keyboard's lower register, is a work of extraordinary tension, unusually fragmented material and unstable harmonies. By contrast, 'Piano Trio No. 6' is one of Beethoven's most subtle chamber works, mellow, lyrical and intimate in nature.
