The Trio Zimmermann's previous release of Beethoven's Trios received excellent reviews and won them the BBC Music Magazine's Chamber Award in 2013. This next instalment shows us the 'lighter' side of Beethoven's chamber works.

The Trio in E flat major and Serenade in D major consist of sequences of six and eight movements respectively, with minuets and marches reminding us of courtly music from an earlier period. However, they are far from 'old-fashioned'.

The adventurous spirit of the young Beethoven is plain to hear, in the exceptionally creative use of textures, thematic development and formal innovation.

In this music, Beethoven gives each instrument an equal importance and a highly individual treatment. A first-class chamber ensemble is required to meet these demands and this is exactly what the Trio Zimmermann offer, comprised of three exceptional soloists.
