Description
Composed in Vienna in 1795, these op. 1 piano trios were presented at the court of Prince Lichnowski. Struck by Beethoven's creativity and originality, Joseph Haydn is reported to have exclaimed at their first performance, "You give me the impression of a man with more than one head, more than one heart and more than one soul!"

"With their weighty symphonic structures and their urgency of musical dialectic, the three Op. 1 Trios were a headlong challenge to the traditional notion of the piano trio as a relaxed, small-scale genre. Each of the works is in four movements rather than the customary three or two; and if the cello still frequently doubles the keyboard bass, it has its moments of glory such as Haydn never and Mozart only rarely allowed in their piano trios. On this new disc the Parnassus Trio brings to these smilingly subversive works plenty of Beethovenian sinew and drive, with bold contrasts of dynamics (a crucial feature of these trios) and properly sharp, stinging sforzando accents. Both slow movements—the rather Mozartian Adagio cantabile in No. 1, and the luxuriant Largo con espressione, in a remote E major, of No. 2 (in G)—are naturally shaped at flowing, unsentimental tempi…. Vital, polished performances."—BBC Music
