Notes & Reviews:

In the spring of 1810, a piano trio by Beethoven, which distinguishes itself from such works in being scored for piano, viola, and cello, was published by Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn. The Piano Trio is an early work, composed in 1795 when Beethoven was only 25. The 'Trio in a-minor' of Brahms was conceived in the summer of 1891 in Bad Ischi, near Salzburg, and displays the autumnal mildness of much of Brahms' late work. Its first performance in November of that year featured the famed Joseph Joachim playing viola with Brahms on the piano with cellist Robert Hausmann. Violist Vidor Nagy was born in Budapest in 1942 and has been directly involved with first performances of several works by Hungarian composers, as well as performing many older works in his own transcriptions.

"Nagy's playing makes light of the awkward corners of the viola part, which makes more frequent forays into the highest register than the sonatas. Jurgen Gerlinger is well attuned to him, and Piazzini provides the perfect setting for her colleagues, knowing exactly when to take proceedings in her hand." -The Strad
