L. v. Beethoven: Complete String Trios Op. 3, 8 & 9

The five String Trios are masterpieces of the young Ludwig van Beethoven as he travels towards the string quartet: however, many musicians and scholars have preferred the mature Trios Op. 9 to the subsequent String Quartets Op. 18. With their new double CD, the Thibaud Trio provide an opportunity to rediscover these milestones in the history of the string trio. more...

Jacques Thibaud String Trio

Ludwig van Beethoven

When you complete a purchase of a physical album (including CDs, vinyl and other formats), a free MP3 version of that album is added to your basket.

 

Following the successful release of String Trios by Cras, Reger, Dohnányi and Kodály (aud. 97.534), the Jacques Thibaud String Trio are now turning towards a Classical composer, with a new audite complete recording of the Beethoven String Trios.

It is not always clear why certain genres make it into the pantheon of musical history, whilst others remain "insiders' tips". The string quartet undoubtedly belongs to the former category, whilst the string trio - despite brilliant works such as Mozart's Divertimento K563 or the Beethoven String Trios - forms part of the latter. The trio formation consisting of a violin, viola and cello is generally deemed to produce a thin sound and to have been neglected by composers. With Beethoven, however, the opposite is true: for the young Beethoven, the trio was a touchstone of his mastery of this form "without piano", in which he found himself as a composer.

He left five trios in all, in Opp. 3 and 8 turning towards the traditions of the divertimento and the serenade, whilst producing new and sophisticated reinterpretations of these forms. His Trios Op. 9, written in 1796-98, became his calling card as a composer for string instruments. All the characteristics of the mature Beethoven can be found here: astonishing sonorities; a sense of the character and personalities of the three instruments; using few, concise themes; drama and sensuousness.

    Les trios à cordes de Beethoven à l’honneur chez Audite

    [...] nos Suisses s’y défendent avec tous les honneurs: interprétation vigoureuse mais toute en contrastes, passion contrôlée où la délicatesse et la puissance alternent avec bonheur. Le ton quelque peu élégiaque des mouvements lents est rendu avec un sens musical rare, sans verser dans le sentimentalisme. En somme, une proposition tout à fait honorable pour découvrir l’un des versants les moins empruntés du massif beethovénien, [...]…

    Hier stimmt jedes Tempo, jeder Übergang, jedes noch so kleine Detail. [...] Zeitweise schaffen es die Musiker sogar, den Klang eines Streichquartetts heraufzubeschwören, was die Aufnahmetechnik brillant dokumentiert. Eine CD, die reizvolle Einblicke in Beethovens Versuchslabor gibt.…

    Maiß, Strijbos und Jianu atmen auf derselben Wellenlänge, verstehen sich blind, kosten das Beethoven-Abenteuer mit Tempo und Seele aus, hören bei Haydn nach und denken an Brahms voraus. Der noble Ton ist für das Dreier-Team Gesetz. Das kommt den scheinbar schwerelosen Beethoven-Werken in jedem Satz zugute.…
