As the opus numbers suggest, the five string trios are relatively early works. Beethoven had sent opus 3 to print in early 1796, and in the same year, he began his compositional work on the Serenade op. 8, which was then followed by the three Trios op. 9. This marked the definitive close of Beethoven's work on this genre. Nevertheless, the five pieces are thoroughbred Beethoven and often played to this day.Also included in the volume is the piece designated in the autograph as “Duet for two obbligato eye-glasses” that Beethoven had apparently written for two myopic friends.

  • April 02, 2008 Beethoven String Trios - Henle Urtext Edition

    I am especially fond of the Henle Urtext editions, as they are totally clear of the sometimes dated fingerings and phrasings contained in other editions. I enjoy seeing only Beethoven's ideas, even if that means I often struggle with the best way to play them without the "benefit" of...

    editorial "help".

    Difficulty Level:
  • December 19, 2007 Beethoven chamber music

    As all Beethoven's chamber music goes, these are not easy. However, the intermediate students could start by taking the simpler slow movements and then go to the faster to start understanding the complexity of his music.
