The Piano Trios, written between 1784 and 1797, represent Haydn’s art at its most enjoyable and fresh.

Three of the trios in this disc were dedicated to Rebecca Schroeter, who lived in London and was a close friend of the composer. The F sharp minor contains a version of the Adagio of Symphony No. 102, which it has been suggested was a favourite of hers. And the G major sports the famous ‘Gypsy Rondo’ finale (Rondo all’Ongarese), one of the most ebullient and best loved movements in the entire repertoire.

The Telegraph

21st July 2011


“the Kungsbacka’s playing ensures all four trios bear witness to the variety, personality and sparkling invention that Haydn channelled into this delightful and multifaceted music.”

The Observer

21st August 2011

“The piano leads brightly, the violin seems a little recessive, and the cello supports well: a sequence of superb music which leaves one wanting more of the series.”

Gramophone Magazine

January 2012

“It's only to be hoped that the Kungsbackas Trio's survey of this somewhat neglected tranche of Haydn's output means to go on as it starts...what matters is the music; and any group that is willing to take it seriously is guaranteed to reap the dividends...The Kungsbackas need fear nothing in comparison [with landmark versions]”
