In a series of 3 albums, the Beethoven Trio Bonn explores the confrontation between one of Beethoven’s standard works for piano trio with a further “house music” arrangement of one of his orchestral works. More than providing an interesting pairing, the Beethoven Trio Bonn was keen on interpreting an original work for piano trio alongside an arrangement of an orchestral work “downsized” to piano trio format. This new concept delivers surprising, unforeseen results. Composers and publishers in Beethoven’s day sought to indulge the pleasures of the middle class: dozens of arrangements and transcriptions of orchestral works were in wide circulation for domestic use. Haydn, Mozart and many others had always tried to provide access to the wonders of symphonic music for those members of the population who could not gain entrance to the grand concerts of the upper classes. Up to the 1930s, music publishers continued to commission composers to arrange and transcribe symphonies and other orchestral works, in order to make them readily available as chamber music; no composer found the task too lowly, since such work was a good source of steady income. The very well-known Piano Trio No. 4 ("Gassenhauer") with his enormous witty playfulness (we listen to the version with the violin instead of the clarinet) and his three (!) movements is partnered with the Symphony No. 6, in an arrangement of the Brahms' friend Christian Gottlieb Belcke (1796-1875). Listening to it will be a big surprise, as the Sixth Symphony is a lovely flowing full body music piece with all the details not forgotten, wonderfully balanced with all its pastoral melodies. © CAvi-Music

While string instruments gave rise to a new repertoire of chamber music at the end of the 18th century with new forms emerging such as the quartet and its derivatives, quintets, septet or octet, the same could not be said for wind instruments since their construction was constantly changing, preventing a cohesive sound when it came to playing together. These counter-productive technical constraints caused a delay in terms of new works. The wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon) gradually came to the fore in the early 19th century, sparking a new craze before enjoying its golden age in the 20th century. The young Beethoven soon became interested in wind instruments, using them in a completely new way throughout his orchestral works. His Quintet for Piano and Winds Op. 16 from 1796 is reminiscent of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet composed twelve years earlier. He later composed an arrangement for piano and strings, but the original sounds just as good, especially thanks to Beethoven’s new way of writing for wind instruments. The two other works on this album are arrangements, as evidenced by the Piano Concerto from 1784, where the lost accompaniment is reconstructed for wind quintet. Being fond of mechanical music, people in the 18th century invented clocks allowing music to be played automatically by complex systems. Like his elders, the young Beethoven composed specific pieces presented here as arrangements for the Ma’alot Quintet accompanied by pianist Markus Becker for the other works in this original programme. © François Hudry/Qobuz
