Beethoven Piano Trios Vol 5

Xyrion Trio - Nina Tichman (piano), Ida Bieler (violin), Maria Kliegel (cello)

Dedicated to his friend and pupil Archduke Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, Beethoven's expansive 'Archduke' Trio is his greatest work in the genre, though increasing deafness meant it also signalled his final appearances as a performer. The cheerful Piano Trio in E-flat major is an earlier work, though only discovered among the composer's papers after his death, and the Kakadu Variations is another good humoured work based on a popular song of the day. Recognised as one of Germany's most outstanding ensembles, the Xyrion Trio plays with passionate intensity, exuberance, subtlety of dynamic expression and the ability to illuminate the music through the strongly individual personalities of its members. Soon after its formation in 2001 the trio was invited to appear in major musical capitals and international festivals throughout the world.

Beethoven Piano Trio No 7 in B-flat major Op 97 'Archduke', Kakadu Variations Op 121a (Piano Trio No 11), Piano Trio in E-flat major WoO 38
