Notes and Editorial Reviews
Already established within Viennese culture by Haydn and Mozart, the trio genre was taken to new limits by the inexhaustible imagination of Beethoven's genius: "a serene joy come from an unknown world", was E. T. A. Hoffmann's reaction on hearing the Trio in D major Op.70 no.1. The Wanderers have ventured into the Beethoven piano trios and mastered every inch of its topography. What better guide could there be for us to follow with total confidence, in their 25th anniversary year?
"If the playing weren’t so delicate, refined, intelligent and colourful it might have felt more than a bit one-sided. As it is Trio Wanderer convince that this is a fully valid view of Schubert, brilliantly and feelingly executed.” --
Stephen Johnson, Chamber Choice, BBC Music Magazine, April 2008
