Haydn: Piano Trios, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
While we may primarily focus on "Papa" Haydn's role as the so-called father of the modern symphony and string quartet, his contributions to other genres were no less impressive or significant. The piano trios, for example, represent a significant portion 43 in total of Haydn's chamber music output and begin at a time before the piano trio was even a formalized genre. Of historical interest are the trios written especially for home performances by women pianists given their virtuosity, a testament to the high caliber of female musicians who were not allowed to perform simply because of their gender, two of which are heard on this album.

While we may primarily focus on "Papa" Haydn's role as the so-called father of the modern symphony and string quartet, his contributions to other genres were no less impressive or significant. The piano trios, for example, represent a significant portion 43 in total of Haydn's chamber music output and begin at a time before the piano trio was even a formalized genre. Of historical interest are the trios written especially for home performances by women pianists given their virtuosity, a testament to the high caliber of female musicians who were not allowed to perform simply because of their gender, two of which are heard on this album. Haydn was also not shy about exploring keys that would have seemed quite unusual at the time, such as the "Hob XV:31 Trio in E flat minor," also heard on this disc. While there is uncertainty as to the chronology of composition, Haydn's unmistakable elegance and refinement can be heard in each of his creations. Performing in its second volume of what will hopefully be the complete piano trios is the Florestan Trio, one of the most accomplished and decorated piano trios in existence. As in the previous installment, Vol. 2 finds more of what listeners have come to love with the Florestans: incredible lightness and energy, spotless intonation, pristine articulation, and a musically fulfilling vision of Haydn's music.
