Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

These two Trios were published together as Beethoven's Op. 70. The first is better known, probably because of its nickname ("Ghost," after the spooky quality of its slow movement), but both are splendid examples of middle-period Beethoven chamber music. The Stuttgart Piano Trio's performances are among the best currently available at any price, and the participation of producer Teije van Geest insures excellent recorded sound. An outstanding bargain. --Leslie Gerber

It is a little difficult to procure a copy of the opus 70/2 without buying a complete set of Beethoiven's works for piano trio ensemble, and these complete sets often include a lot of lightweight filler material (mostly variations) that you won't really listen to all that much. Therefore, I was glad to see that Naxos coupled the 70/2 with the much better-known and more widely available "Ghost" trio, which is usually paired with the awesome "Archduke" trio. The "Ghost" is well known and rightly so. It is typical of the trubulent dimension of Beethoven's middle period and has a gloriously melancholy and foreboding slow movement. The 70/2 is a more spacious and meditative piece (not in the same league as the "Archduke" but excellent nevertheless), although it does have its fiery moments. For this reason, I think it is right that the two should be packaged together, since they perfectly encapsulate and illustrate the duality in Beethoven's compositions during his middle period. The Opus 70/2 is to the "Ghost" what the fourth piano concerto, the "Pastoral" symphony and the violin concerto are to the fifth symphony, the "Appassionata" and the "Emperor" piano concerto.

The playing is outstanding. The Stuttgart Piano Trio have some excellent recordings of Beethoven and Schubert under their belt (I've reviewed and highly recommended them elsewhere), and any purchase of their recordings is a safe bet re. quality of sound and depth of interpretation. They have played together a long time and it shows. For sheer, unsurpassable je ne sais quoi magic, I don't think anyone can beat the Kempff/Fournier/Szerbing(sp.?) set for its utterly transcendent rendering of the "Ghost" trio's slow movement, but that set is harder to find and more expensive.

12-21-13. Like some of you, I am embaressed to admit I din't grow up with Beethoven's chamber music in my crib. I had to mature first in order to appreciate them not fully, but for starters. One could live a second lifetime to just learn these masterpieces, let alone memorize them so as to be able to choose one's favorite or eliminate less favorable readings. Itr's kind of like the childbirth problem in this country. Living in a genuinely liberal state like Washington, I just retired from a 23 year career in Radiology, the last 11 or so, at a small rural Catholic hospital. In the town newspaper, I would read the list of babies born at our facility. At least one half born to parents with different last names. "Playing house,"seems to be a favorite pastime for kids, these days. Marraige? Who gets married anymore, now it is enough just to get the male bumb in the "family" to financially support his girlfriend. The most scoffed at line today seems to be,"a child needs a daddy". How foolish of us, just at least don't take off, but pretend that you're actually a man. In other words, praqcticallity trumps trhe goal, a married, stable and growing environment in which the baby may have a chance to grow up in. So, forget about the BEST Beethocven, just some work that at least teaches the bsics.
I got lucky with this fine Naxos recording of one of the master's best works, the Trio for piano, cello and violin inD, the "Ghost." Played hewre by the Stuttgart trio, it runs 27:50 and is coupled with the E-Flat Op. 70, #2, a bit longer at 28:18. I have, on ocassiion, refered to movies to explain or embellish my opinions on music and this is no exception.

These are wonderful performances of the op. 70 trios, and especially the lesser-known op. 70:2. Ensemble, intonation, and rhythmic precision are spot-on, and the recording is clear and realistic. Each of the players, and especially pianist Monika Leonhard, project individual virtuosity while still playing together. This recording compares very favorably to celebrated versions by the Beaux Arts Trio and Ashkenazy/Perlman/Harrell, and rivals Trio Fontenay as my personal favorite.

Two more great Beethoven piano trios performed by the Stuttgart Piano Trio on Naxos. Wonderful, lighthearted music that will cheer you up. I now have the complete Naxos set of these trios.
