5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beethoven Trio Performances October 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's a darn shame that most concert performances of Beethoven piano trios are primarily of the named ones - 'Archduke' and 'Ghost' - because the other trios are certainly worth hearing from time to time. Here, in what appears to be the beginning of a new series of Beethoven piano trio recordings on the Naxos label -- there's already been an earlier series by the Stuttgart Trio perhaps ten years or so ago -- is a disc that features the 'Ghost' and its Opus 70 mate, the E flat major trio. And for lagniappe we get the rarely heard Variations in E Flat Major, Op. 44. Two of the players are well-known to me from their earlier traversal of the Beethoven Cello Sonatas: Maria Kliegel, cello, and Nina Tichman, piano. I raved about those recordings here at Amazon. Tichman and Kliegel are joined here by violinist Ida Bieler, and they call themselves the Xyrion Trio. Tichman and Bieler are Americans, graduates of the Juilliard School, and long resident in Germany. Bieler is the former concertmaster of the Gürzenich Orchestra in Cologne. Kliegel is a native of Germany but studied with, among others, Janos Starker at the University of Indiana in America.

There are many recordings of the 'Geistertrio' and many of them are wonderful. But if you don't have one of those recordings you could certainly do worse than acquire this budget release. It is not budget music-making, let me assure you. These are mature, musicianly, subtle instrumentalists. I don't know how long the Xyrion Trio have been playing together, but they sound completely in synch with each other.

But I'd like to focus on the E Flat Trio, Op. 70, No. 2. This is a sensational performance. One of my favorite middle-period movements by Beethoven is the gentle, slightly diffident second movement, the allegretto.

The oddly named Xyrion Trio, formed 2001, is comprised of players that have recorded on the Naxos label previously -- cellist Maria Kliegel and painist Nina Tichman have recorded Beethoven's cello sonatas on the label. Violinist Ida Bieler was formerly concertmaster of the Gurzenich Orchestra-Cologne.

The trio adopt a youthful, vivacious approach to the Op. 70 trios from Beethoven's middle period. Their style is zippy and accented in a get with it format that eschews reflection, repose and subtlety. If you like middle Beethoven performed this way you will like this CD, which is exceptionally well recorded resulting in very truthful sound and extremely wide dynamic range.

However, if you are like me -- and like your Beethoven more mature with some subtlety -- you may be let down a bit by these performances. While the trio does a generally fine job in Op. 70 No. 1, called the "Ghost" trio for the tremelos in its largo, I found the players a bit detached going into that movement, especially the thin and quiet entry of the violin and cello in the movement.

What more disturbed me was the lack of subtlety and style in the Op. 70 No. 2 trio, one of Beethoven's most subtle works of chamber music. At the end of the first subject in the opening movement, before the repeat, the trio makes no attempt to change the pace or inflection of their attack. They simply keep on going at the same pace, ramming right through the composer's carefully enunciated transition as if it were just another bar line. Their soft-grained attack in the central figure of Allegretto also displayed unwily Beethoven style.

For me, the playing in this performance, however good it may be, is simply too rapid too often with too much razzle dazzle replacing sound musical judgment.
