    Chamber music with orchestra?
    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.
