Overview

While there surely are volumes of Deutsche Grammophon's 1997 Beethoven edition with greater music in them, there are few with more interesting music in them than this volume of Beethoven's chamber music. Although it doesn't include any string quartets, it includes the three youthful piano quartets and the string quintet that is in every way the equal of the early quartet. Although it doesn't include any piano trios, it does include the wonderfully lyrical "Gassenhauer Trio." While it doesn't include any violin or cello sonatas, it does include the lovely septet, the delightful woodwind quartet, the exhilarating horn sonata, the sextet for horns and strings, the exquisite mandolin works, the charming flute and piano variations, and the lighter-than-air "Serenade for flute, violin, and viola." For the most part, the performances are terrific: the Amadeus Quartet plus Aronowitz's quintet; the Amadeus Quartet plus Eschenbach's piano quartets; the Kempff, Leister, and Fournier's "Gassenhauer Trio"; the Bloom and Barenboim horn sonata; the Gallois and Licad flute variations; and even the Fietz and Webersinke mandolin piece works. And even when the performances aren't altogether terrific, as in the Hagen Quartett's "Fugue for string quartet," Op. 137, the fault is as much the music's as it is the Hagen's. Plus, DG's remastered sound is uniformly tremendous.
