Notes and Editorial Reviews

The name of Beethoven is usually associated with music that is serious in nature, revolutionary and intensely dramatic. This is certainly true of many of the works of his maturity, yet, there are just as many compositions, particularly from his early years which, while making no overwhelming emotional demands on the listener, are finely crafted works written with great skill and technical polish. Among such works can be included both the Opus' 3 and 8. While many string trios were written both in the classical period and later for the combination of two violins and cello (a descendant of the trio sonatas of Baroque times), it was the combination of violin, viola and cello, as established by Haydn and other composers, that took precedence in Read more classical chamber music. In all, Beethoven composed five works for this same combination, violin, viola and cello. All of the works dated from his early years and are important because they were the "training ground" from which sprang his later masterpieces for string quartet. Read less
