A concerto for four? The Triple Concerto may well be one of Beethoven's most enigmatic works: some commentators have seen it as no more than a vast rhapsody intented to show off the virtuosity of three hand-picked soloists. But when a piano trio that regularly plays together turns its attention to the piece, it takes on a quite different aspect: it becomes a genuine "Concerto for trio and orchestra". In fact the "Triple" shares the same Beethovenian ideal as the heroic quest that is Egmont: and in the case of the incidental music for his drama Goethe recognised – for once! – that the composer had "penetrated his intensions with admirable genius"… This title was released for the first time in 2001.
“Harteros is wonderful in her solos in the Egmont incidental music.”
