Mozart: Divertimento K. 563 Preludes and Fugues K. 404a (2019)

Mozart

Ssens Trio

SSENS TRIO (pronounced ‘Essence’) was established in 2014 by three musicians with a wealth of experience in the international music scene. The trio has appeared in concert with Geir Inge Lotsberg, Eivind Ringstad, Håvard Gimse and Leif Ove Andsnes, among others. 

THE DIVERTIMENTO THAT DEMOLISHED BOUNDARIES
On 27 September 1788, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) made the following entry in his personal catalogue: Ein Divertimento à 1 violino, 1 viola, violincello; di sei pezze.(… in six movements). There is not much more we know about this towering work, K. 563. Mozart himself may have played the viola when it was performed in Dresden the following year. (Mozart researchers are not entirely sure about this performance.) Printing the score ended up in the hands of the active, though not always accurate, publisher, Carlo Artaria, who called the work Gran Trio in 1792, the year after the composer’s death. The original score has vanished.

Ssens Trio

Ssens Trio (pronounced ‘Essence’) was established in 2014 by three musicians with a wealth of experience in the international music scene. The trio has appeared in concert with Geir Inge Lotsberg, Eivind Ringstad, Håvard Gimse and Leif Ove Andsnes, among others. Their first CD, Beethoven: String Trio Op. 3 & Serenade Op. 8 (LWC1122), received Pizzicato Magazine’s “Supersonic Award” and a prestigious ICMA Awards nomination in 2018. Fanfare Magazine wrote: With absolutely no hesitation I will say that it goes right to the top of my Beethoven String Trios list. (Jerry Dubins). And the following from a review in Pizzicato Magazine under the heading ‘Beethoven With A Communicative Joy of Music Making’: Their performance is brimming with the joy of playing together. An outstanding “trialogue”, with each performer fully sensing the other. Through this interactive music making, which in the Adagio and Minuet movements invokes a remarkably intimate mood, Beethoven’s works gain in depth and sensuousness. And when one combines the sensitive playing with a wonderfully eloquent virtuosity, the way is clear for pure listening pleasure. (Alain Steffen)
