How come a piano trio calls themselves ‘van Beethoven’? Isn't that a little bold? Beethoven stands for independence of mind, for revolutionary ideas, for music that reaches far beyond his own time. Beethoven was a ‘lone wolf’, but at the same time the central point of departure for new traditions of composition. This fits in with the main mission of the TrioVanBeethoven: the care of the classical trio works, but also the commissioning of new compositions or crossover projects constitute the work of Verena Stourzh, violin, Clemens Zeilinger, piano, and Franz Ortner, cello. Their first grand opus which is presented now with Gramola is this timeless recording of Beethoven's complete works for piano trio in an extensive release, comprising countless hours of recording sessions, which made them ascend into the proverbial olymp of this genre.
