Trio for two oboes and English horn in C, Op. 87 by Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven composed this work for chamber ensemble in 1795 at the age of 25. Beethoven had been living in Vienna for three years by now, and was considered by many to be the ‘successor’ to Mozart. There is evidence that Beethoven had originally planned to return to his birth place of Bonn in Western Germany, however in 1794 the forces of the French Republic had captured Bonn along with other cities along the river Rhine. In 1794, Beethoven’s friend and mentor Joseph Hayden had left for England, partly due to the outbreak of the War of the First Coalition, and partly for employment opportunities.

Despite the loss of his mentor and the unrest in his home city, Beethoven would remain in Vienna and make his public debut in March with a three-day concert including several of his own compositions, a well as a Mozart piano concerto.

This work is in four movements:
I. Allegro
II. Adagio
III. Minuet. Allegro molto. Scherzo – Trio
IV. Finale. Presto

String Quartet No. 13 in B flat major, Op. 130 by Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven would complete the first version of this string quartet in 1826 at the age of 56. The premiere of this version of the quartet took place the same year in Vienna with the quartet being dedicated to Nikolai Galitzin, a Russian aristocrat and patron of Beethoven.

The first version of this quartet was comprised of six movements, with the final movement being a ‘Große Fuge’ (Grand Fugue) of considerable length. The public reception to the premiere in March of 1826 made it clear to Beethoven’s publishers that the final movement was too long and intricate compared to the rest of the quartet. At their behest Beethoven removed the fugue, giving it its own publication number (Grande Fugue Op. 133) and composing a new simple final movement, an allegro in B flat major.

By age 56, Beethoven was almost entirely deaf and would have intermittent bouts of fever, jaundice and difficulty moving due to swollen and arthritic limbs. Beethoven had never married, and the closest person he would ever have to a son was his nephew Karl, a troubled young man who attempted to commit suicide in 1826, which fortunately failed. The relationship between Beethoven and his sister-in-law Johanna van Beethoven (mother of Karl) was not pleasant, and it is clear from correspondence from both Beethoven and Johanna that they never felt like family.

Despite the tragic family circumstances and the debilitating medical issues Beethoven would experience towards the end of his life, the new ending for his string quartet No. 13 would be a brisk and joyous contradance (country dance). Much like the ending to his 9th symphony, Beethoven would show his defiance to ‘fate’ (as he would call it) through is music, turning pain and suffering into music of incredible beauty and optimism. It would seem that Beethoven never forgot the declaration he made to himself in 1802 when he was first told he was going deaf:

“(He will) seize Fate by the throat, it shall certainly not crush me completely”.

The new 6th movement to this quartet would be the final work Beethoven would compose before his death in March of 1827.

The new version of this quartet (which is the recording you are listening to) is comprised of six movements:
I. Adagio, ma non troppo – Allegro
II. Presto
III. Andante con moto, ma non troppo. Poco Scherzando
IV. Alla danza tedesca. Allegro assai
V. Cavatina. Adagio molto espressivo
VI. Allegro

String Quartet No. 11 in F minor, Op. 95 ‘Serioso’ by Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven completed this quartet in 1810 while living in Vienna. The premiere performance took place in 1814 for a small group of other musicians, artists and patrons.

The nickname “Ghost” is due to a pupil of Beethoven, Carl Czerny, who commented that the second movement of the first trio in this pair being particularly eerie and reminiscent of the ghostly opening scene in the Shakespeare play ‘Hamlet’.

This trio is comprised of three movements:
I. Allegro vivace e con brio

Variations in E-flat major piano trio, Op. 44 by Ludwig van Beethoven

While this work is designated as the Opus 44, Beethoven completed this work in 1792 at the age of 22. The later Opus number is due to the date when the publisher Hoffmeister released the work in 1804. A common practice for composers in the late 1700’s was to take a melody or song from a popular opera and compose a set of variations on the theme to display talent with either a solo instrument or small ensemble. Beethoven took part of the melody from the aria by the mayor from the opera Das rote Käppchen (The Red Cap) by Carl Ditters con Dittersdorf.

This collection includes the original theme and fourteen variations.

Beethoven completed this trio for piano, violin and cello in 1797 and first published in 1798. The nickname ‘Gassenhaur Trio’ was given due to the theme of the third movement. This theme is based on a song from the opera ‘L’amor marinaro ossia Il corsaro’ by Joseph Weigl. The song in question "Pria ch'io l'impegno" ("Before I go to work") was so popular that it could be heard being sung or whistled in the lanes (or “Gasse”) of Vienna. The term ‘Gassenhauer’ itself means a simple tune that is sung by people in as they go about their daily life in the city.
