In the classical era, and far into the 19th century, piano trios were what we might call "fashion accessories." It is thus no coincidence that Beethoven, following in the footsteps of Haydn and Mozart, took up this genre and created altogether 13 piano trios of his own. This first volume contains the three Piano Trios op. 1, the very first works of all which Beethoven deemed publishable and deserving of an opus number. This was followed by the Trio op. 11 for clarinet or violin, cello and piano ("Gassenhauer"). Beethoven drew a great deal of attention to himself when he presented the three Trios op. 1 to the public (including Joseph Haydn) probably in August 1795, at a soiree given by Prince Lichnowsky. They have remained precious exemplars of their genre to this day.

    I recently purchased Volumes 1-3 of the Beethoven Piano Trios from Verlag. I have not yet had the pleasure of playing from them, but from past experience of Urtext editions from G Henle Verlag, particularly Beethoven and Mozart, I can report 100% satisfaction.

  • April 12, 2007 Excellent edition of core repertoire

    This edition contains the three early piano trios of Beethoven. I have loved the third ever since I was teenager (I didn't know the others then) and its passion and excitement still do it for me. I prefer to Urtext editions as I prefer to see exactly what the...

    composer wrote, uncluttered by an editors opinion (good though they are, sometimes). The layout is also excellent. This is one of the best editions available in my opinion and is a fine addition to my library.
