The Trio for Violin, Violoncello and Piano, E-flat Major D 929, was composed by Franz Schubert (1797-1828) a year before his death.
The Beaux Arts Trio performed in the Beethoven House
Within the classical-romantic, piano-trio repertoire, the piece is often referred to as the "monument." A possible reason for that is its unusual overall length of about 45 minutes.
The D 929 impresses with its masterly composition technique and wide emotional palette. In the opening movement, Robert Schumann identified both "deep rage," as well as "ebullient aspiration."
The Beaux Arts Trio payed this famous chamber oeuvre in the Beethoven House in Bonn on Sept. 20, 2007, as part of the Beethovenfest. The four movements are: Allegro, Andante con moto; Scherzando - Trio; Allegro moderato.
