About this Recording

BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Trios, Vol. 1 - Piano Trios Nos. 5, 6, 10 (Xyrion Trio)

Composed during his ‘middle period’, Beethoven’s two Op. 70 Piano Trios are typically dramatic works full of structural and thematic innovation. The striking Ghost Trio, so-called after its slow movement with its eerie and sombre tremolos in the lower register of the keyboard, 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.
