Beethoven: String Trios, Op. 9, Nos. 1-3
Catalog: GEN 20699
Format: COMPACT DISC
With its first of two GENUIN albums, the Trio Boccherini proves that Beethoven's string trios are more than finger exercises by the composer along the way to writing quartets. Opus 9 is a rarely recorded and performed early work by the master, and yet they already reveal Beethoven in his entirety, as it were, in a tonally condensed form. The ensemble, alumnus of the European Chamber Music Academy, draws on members from three different continents to bring together diverse aspects of their musical education—at the highest level!
