Description

Composed to help launch a major career in Vienna, Beethoven’s three Op. 1 piano trios are true milestones in the chamber literature. That Beethoven chose the piano trio to show his personality and skill speaks volumes of the stature of chamber music in the Classical age, and Beethoven did not disappoint: his first three trios earned him enough to pay his bills for almost three years. Debussy’s charming Petite Suite for Piano, Four Hands leads to the audacious, show-stopping chamber concerto of Chausson.
