Rautio Piano Trio
Beethoven Piano Trio Op.1/1
Beethoven Piano Trio Op.1/2
The Rautio Piano Trio returns to Resonus with this first volume of the complete cycle of Beethoven Piano Trios, recorded on period instruments. This is the culmination of the Trio’s wider project charting the evolution of the piano trio from its emergence in the mid-eighteenth century, with the music of JC Bach, CPE Bach, Mozart and Haydn, though to Beethoven’s complex and mature realisation of the genre.
