This 1998 CD from Naxos is another of those "hidden gems" in their vast catalogue. The disc is complimentary to the superb cycle of Beethoven symphonies that Béla Drahos and the Nicolaus Esterházy Sinfonia recorded for Naxos in the 1990s Beethoven - Symphonies Nos 1 & 6 Beethoven - Symphonies Nos 2 & 5 Beethoven - Symphonies Nos. 3 and 8 Beethoven - Symphonies Nos 4 and 7 Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 - all discs that I play more often than those by better-known conductor/orchestra combinations.

There are two Beethoven works on this disc. Firstly, we have the piano version of Beethoven's Piano Concerto in D, Op.61a, a piece commissioned a year after the works violin debut by Muzio Clementi, composer, pianist, and music publisher. The piece, I think, works very well in this form and the soloist, the ubiquitous Jenó Jandó, brings the perfect light touch to the piece.

Jandó is joined by two other stalwarts of the Naxos catalogue, Dong-Suk Kang (violin) and Maria Kliegel (cello), for the recording of what many think to be Beethoven's problem child, the Triple Concerto, Op.56. Actually, this piece for piano trio and orchestra, written in 1804-5, is melodic, lyrical and shows a great deal of skill in it's composition. I think it's a delightful piece, especially in such a sympathetic performance as this.

A beautifully recorded, brilliantly played, CD, this disc is very highly recommended.

The only concerto Beethoven ever wrote for more than one solo instrument Violin, Cello, and Piano in C major.
The cello and violin share the melodic material of the movement between them while the piano provides a discreet accompaniment.
