On Saturday, 6th of October 2018, 16:03 pm (rerun Thursday, 11th of October 2018, 22:06 pm), Swiss Radio SRF 2 Kultur will broadcast excerpts of the Beethoven edition to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Swiss Piano Trio. The focus lies on volume V of the Complete Works for Piano Trio by Beethoven, released in October 2018. This volume includes the famous Triple Concerto recorded together with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.

In their recording of the Triple Concerto, the Swiss Piano Trio take a new approach by performing the work  without conductor despite its highly demanding interplay between solo ensemble and orchestra. The pianist and concertmaster lead in tandem, which allows to better highlight the chamber music-like connection between soloists and orchestra. Joining in partnership with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and its long and rich tradition, the Swiss Piano Trio presents the Triple Concerto as a juxtaposition of two chamber ensembles of different sizes - piano trio and chamber orchestra.
