Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In a new collaboration with ensemble Trio Ex Aequo, this release which features Beethoven's piano trios, is the first in a series of three.

Matthias Moosdorf is the cellist of the Leipzig String Quartet, one of the world's premier quartets. He has performed with the quartet in more than 60 countries on all continents and can be heard in over 80 prize-winning CD recordings. He has won four Echo-Klassik awards.

Fanfare Magazine - Jerry Dubins
The Genuin CD was recorded in two sessions during August 2011 in Leipzig's MDR Chorprobensaal by engineering, technical, and production teams that are obviously very experienced at their jobs, for the sound is as balanced and as good as it gets for this combination of instruments. The booklet note, in English and German, is authored by Ex Aequo's Gerald Fauth and is as informative as it needs to be about the music. This is urgently recommended and with the hope expressed that we can look forward to Beethoven's remaining piano trios from this source.
