By giving the stringed instruments the status of genuinely equal partners with the piano, it was Beethoven who gave the piano trio the form it was to retain throughout the 19th century. This album presents the composer's last two works in the genre, Op.70 No.2 dedicated to Countess Marie Erdödy, and the celebrated 'Archduke' trio, which marked the final public appearance of its composer.

Three eminent Beethovenians, Isabelle Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Alexander Melnikov join forces here in performances that aim to highlight Beethoven's humour in their interpretation and set a new benchmark in the process.

“Melnikov plays a restored fortepiano here…and it blends perfectly with Isabelle Faust's wonderfully attentive, selfless violin playing, and Jean-Guihen Queyras's inquiringly musical cello..these three players pitch [the Archduke] perfectly, always listening to each other and giving the textures a buoyancy and transparency that bring something fresh to every bar. Fascinating.” (The Guardian)

“This ensemble is something of an A team. All play period instruments on this alluring disc, making for some ravishing textures” (The Sunday Times)

“The playing throughout the trio is thoroughly attuned to the tone and emotional scope of the music, profoundly rapt in the andante and perkily whimsical, explosive and propulsive in the gloriously idiosyncratic finale.” (The Daily Telegraph)
