Composed in 1798, a few years after he settled in Vienna, Beethoven’s Gassenhauer (‘popular song’) Trio gained this nickname from its set of variations on Pria ch’io l’impegno from Weigl’s comic opera Il Corsaro. It opens with a finely crafted sonata form Allegro con brio, followed by an Adagio based on his own Piano Sonata Op. 49, No. 2.
The Clarinet Trio, Op. 38, published in 1803, is Beethoven’s own stylish transcription of his extraordinarily popular Septet, Op. 20 (1799).
Volumes 1 (8557723), 2 (8557724) and 3 (8570255) are also available.
