Beethoven, Complete Piano Trios vol. 1: Op. 1 Nos. 1 & 3, Op. 11
When Beethoven left Bonn for Vienna in 1792 he was already an experienced composer: his first published composition, the Dressler Variations WoO 63,  was issued in 1782, followed the next year by a set of three Piano Sonatas now known as WoO 47 and some minor works, and, in 1791, by the virtuosic Righini Variations WoO 65. These early publications were only the tip of the  iceberg, and there is evidence that during his time in Bonn he composed in a wide variety of genres, including concertos, cantatas, and chamber music. Nevertheless, many of the works that Beethoven had finished before his arrival in Vienna remained unpublished until after his death.

Press reviews

Musicweb International

There is plenty of wit and grace in these pieces, and you can hear these three musicians delighting in every moment. Beethoven’s virtuoso piano writing suits Minnaar’s digital dexterity to the ground, and even in the Presto finale of Op. 1 No. 1 there is no glossing over the musical shapes in all of those runs and scales. Op. 1 No. 3 with its minor-key gravitas gives a more substantial impression than No. 1, but the smiles and sideways glances are still present not far beneath the serious work, and the surprises in the finale come up sounding truly new and fresh. The Piano Trio Op. 11 with its reference to a comic opera by Joseph Wiegl in its third movement is superb, and in my view the Van Baerle Trio never puts a foot wrong in any of these works, pacing both fast and slow allowing the music to develop and breathe with a sense of balance and ease as well as with drama and excitement, all aided by a fabulous DSD recorded sound that puts us up close and personal with the musicians.
