Here's a piece you don't often hear performed in concert: Mozart's Divertimento in B flat major, K. 254 (aka, his Piano Trio No. 1). While the other five works in the same form are performed frequently by virtue of their later date of composition, the early Trio No. 1 is not only rarely performed in concert, it's usually recorded only in context of all the other trios. And so it is here: Trio No. 1 leads off this 2007 Hyperion disc by England's Florestan Trio, and, naturally, it is followed by two later trios – No. 2 in G major, K. 496, and No. 5 in C major, K. 548.

This CD introduces to disc the newly formed Florestan Trio comprising Susan Tomes, Anthony Marwood and Richard Lester, all now-familiar and highly respected artists after their many earlier recordings, both as members of other ensembles and as soloists. Miss Tomes and Mr Lester were, of course, members of the now-disbanded piano quartet Domus (which was joined by Mr Marwood in its last, award-winning recording of the two Fauré Piano Quintets on CDA66766).

Anton Arensky (1861-1906) was a representative of Russian intelligence as it was growing through the late nineteenth century. His father was a doctor who played cello, and his mother played piano. Therefore, Anton started learning music at home. When he was 21 he ended his studies at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, where he developed his composition skills under the direction of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. He taught some of the great musicians who would follow his generation, including Sergei Rachmaninoff and Alexander Scriabin.

"He who has heard my music, must free himself of all human miseries." said Beethoven. When Trio Leos recorded Beethoven's Trio Opus 1 more than two hundred years after their creation, they wished, of course, to join that long tradition of conservation and questioning of the great works of the history of music. Beethoven wanted to abolish the bounds of time. His past modernity is an impetus, a germinating strength which is still available. Christophe Hache, a musician with a wide cultural range (classical, jazz, contemporary music), bears witness to this original shock wave in his Désinstallation. His piece, built on the finale of the second trio, is both resonance and amplification of Beethoven's energy.

"He who has heard my music must be free from all human misery," said Beethoven. By recording the Beethoven Trio Opus 1 over two hundred years after their creation, Leo Trio had of course the desire to be part of this long tradition of preserving and questioning the great works of the history of music. Beethoven wanted to abolish temporal boundaries. Its modernity of yesterday is an impulse, a germinating force always available. Christophe Hache, musician of all cultures (classical, jazz, contemporary music), testifies in Uninstallation of this original shock wave. His play, built on the theme of the finale of the second trio, is both resonance and amplification of the Beethovenian energy.

Eighteenth-century keyboard trios were regularly billed as ‘sonatas for the harpsichord or fortepiano, with the accompaniment of violin and violoncello’. You would hardly guess that pecking order from these performances. If you’ve heard Riccardo Minasi’s Baroque performances you’ll know that he is no shrinking violet. His playing here is as lively and inventive as you’d expect. Yet time and again he upstages Maxim Emelyanychev’s fortepiano – say, at the opening of the early G minor Trio (No 5), where the touches of violin countermelody virtually swamp the principal line in the keyboard.

Secretly, I hope to make something of myself, but after Beethoven who can do anything? These words by the juvenile Franz Schubert might explain why it took him 15 years - until 1827, just one year prior to his death - to begin writing both of his great piano trios, works of epic, almost symphonic dimensions. This new interpretation by violinist Thomas Albertus Imberger with David Geringas, cello and Michael Korstick, piano works out the lyricism and thematic work as well as the affects and discontinuities which illustrate the large influence, that Beethoven's composing had on Schubert's oeuvre. Similar effects can be observed with the Notturno D 897, in contrast to the Trio Movement Allegro D 28, which being an early work exhibits closer ties to Mozart.

This album markes the fourth volume of the complete recordings of Beethoven's piano trios by the Austrian TrioVanBeethoven. It opens with the Trio, Op. 1/3 in C minor. Preceding this last work of hte group of piano trios, Op. 1 were a great number of uncounted works and sketches like the Variations, Op. 44, whose first drafts can be dated back to as early as the year 1792. The famous ""Gassenhauer"" Trio Op. 11 which was originally written for clarinet instead of the violin, got its sobriquet from the final movement of the work, comprising variation son a then very popular melody from the opera ""L'amor marinaro ossia il corsaro"" by Joseph Weigl from 1797. The simplicity of this tune in contrast to the normally more serious and complex writing of Beethoven enthused his contemporary critics, and it was advocated he were to write more natural rather than strained pieces. Why 'van Beethoven'?

The quality of the recorded sound is so perfectly clear on this recording, like finely etched crystal, while at the same time it is so robust and resonant, that it is difficult to believe that the piano played on these two marvelous CDs is a replica of a 1785 Walter fortepiano, a smaller and much more fragile instrument than today's modern concert grand pianos.
