The finale of the "Gassenhauer" Trio, which was composed in 1797, draws on a popular Singspiel melody by the composer Josef Weigl whose cheerful naiveté is very well-suited to the character of the (B flat) clarinet. The dimensions and ambitious scope of the work make it a truly "classical" piano trio.
Sometimes referred to as the "eighth" trio, the Piano Trio in E flat major, op.38, for violin or clarinet, cello and piano which Beethoven published in 1807 under the title "Grand Trio", is an arrangement of the Septet, op.20, written in 1799-1800. Beethoven presented the Septet in April 1800 along with the First Symphony at an Academy in Vienna where it met with enthusiastic acclaim.
Finally, the Trio Movement in E flat major dates back to the composer's younger years: he wrote the piece in 1790 for the members of the so-called Zehrgarten Club, before later setting out for Vienna in 1792.
