Beethoven Trio No. 4 op. 11 « Gassenhauer »
Triple concerto for violin, cello and piano op. 56
Symphony No. 5 op. 67
Three performers with strong characters have come together for Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. The composer wanted to place the three solo parts on an equal footing. To do so, he drew inspiration from the trio for piano and strings which was very fashionable at the time. The three players will then perform Piano Trio No. 4. The writing is particularly dense. More complex still, the writing of the Fifth Symphony, which was to become one of the most famous scores in history, unsettled the orchestra on its very first performance. True to form, Beethoven flew into a rage and fisticuffs were only narrowly avoided. Contemporary critics had reservations which seem particularly poignant: “The overwhelmed listener fears that the monstrous noise will render him deaf”.
