Kempff, Szeryng & Fournier play with all the coordination necessary to provide exquisite readings of Beethoven's under-rated piano trios.

Just to think in Wilhelm Kempff at the piano, with his unsurpassable cantabile line, Henryk Szerying' s notable expressiveness and unique tune, and the refined phrasing of Pierre Fournier, should be a proof of unerring and faultless musicality and the most genuine musicality, so hard to find in these times, where there are soloists of blazing technique and articulated phrasing, but we must accept the era of the great trios is actually placing across an unsaid crisis, because by unknown reasons don' t endure the demanded time to grow up together. Although this statement is far to be applied for the rest of combinations of chamber ensembles.

The distinctive and fortunate conjunction of these three notable and phenomenal soloists made possible for all of us to enjoy the most remarkable set of these piano trios.

Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97, by Ludwig van Beethoven is a piano trio for piano, violin, and cello, finished in 1811. It is commonly referred to as the Archduke Trio, because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, an amateur pianist who was a friend and composition student of Beethoven. The trio was written late in the composer's so-called "middle period". He began composing it in the summer of 1810, and completed it in March 1811. Although the "Archduke Trio" is sometimes numbered as "No. 7", the numbering of Beethoven's twelve piano trios is not standardized, and in other sources the Op. 97 trio may be shown as having a different number, if any.
