Format: Audio CD
Unlike Beethoven's middle-period piano trios, the trios from Op. 1, two of the three of them presented here, are very early Beethoven and sound almost more like Haydn or one of his imitators than Beethoven. Not that that's a bad thing. It's just that they don't sound much like the Beethoven with whom we are most familiar. I reviewed an earlier volume in this series in which the Trios Nos. 5 & 6 were played by the Xyrion Trio -- it bugs me that I don't know the origin of the group's odd name -- and gave it a rave. Individually the players -- Nina Tichman, piano; Ida Bieler, violin; Maria Kliegel, cello -- have had sterling solo careers and since its formation in 2001 the Trio has forged an enviable reputation for exuberant, musical, technically secure performances and recordings. There is no exception to that in the present recording. The only relatively minor let-down, dare I say it, is with the music itself. Let's face it, the Beethoven of 1795 was still something of an apprentice, or at least he had not forged his recognizable style. For instance, the Op. 1, No. 1 Trio sounds like it could have come from someone like Stamitz or Eybler; indeed it starts with one of those clichéd 'Mannheim rockets' for which Stamitz was famous. Still, if one weren't expecting 'Beethoven' one could easily be pleased with these works on their own merits. So perhaps I'm being a bit harsh. It's a little like asking Verdi to have composed 'Falstaff' when he was twenty-five.

Those trivial caveats out of the way, the performances of these pieces are delightful. The First Trio, like the Second unusually in four rather than the common three movements, contains a sparkling finale with delightful skips in the piano part.
