The Rautio Piano Trio returns to Resonus with this second volume of Beethoven’s 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.

 Francesco Rugeri (Ruggieri), 1695, Cremona
 Paul McNulty, after Walter & Sohn (1805). Five and a half octaves, with sustain, moderator and una-corda knee levers.

Recorded in 2022 at Wyastone Concert Hall, Monmouth
