The filming of the B flat Trio was one of the Beaux Arts Trio’s last activities with Bernard Greenhouse who retired shortly afterwards. Both performances here are deeply expressive, with unexpected shadows in the sunny B flat Trio, revealing hidden depths to Schubert’s work.
The Trio has won many distinguished awards for its recordings, including the Prix Mondial du Disque, three Grand Prix du Disque, the Union de la Presse Musicale Belge Caecilia Award, the Gramophone Record of the Year, and the Stereo Review Record of the Year Award.
“I haven’t heard such playing since Cortot, Thibaud and Casals” – the distinguished French conductor, Charles Munch, on the original Trio following their first concert.
Both concerts are beautifully filmed in Edinburgh’s elegant Signet Library.
