In a series of 3 albums, the Beethoven Trio Bonn explores the confrontation between one of Beethoven's standard works for piano trio with a further "house music" arrangement of one of his orchestral works. More than providing an interesting pairing, the Beethoven Trio Bonn was keen on interpreting an original work for piano trio alongside an arrangement of an orchestral work "downsized" to piano trio format. This new concept delivers surprising, unforeseen results. Composers and publishers in Beethoven's day sought to indulge the pleasures of the middle class: dozens of arrangements and transcriptions of orchestral works were in wide circulation for domestic use. Haydn, Mozart and many others had always tried to provide access to the wonders of symphonic music for those members of the population who could not gain entrance to the grand concerts of the upper classes. Up to the 1930s, music publishers continued to commission composers to arrange and transcribe symphonies and other orchestral works, in order to make them readily available as chamber music; no composer found the task too lowly, since such work was a good source of steady income. Vol. 2 presents the young fresh Symphony No. 2 in Beethoven own trio arrangement coupled with the less known but definitely beautiful Trio No. 6. It sounds as if the Symphony was a trio in it's original form, natural and favorable. Also in this arrangement, the piano carries the main load of all the orchestral voices. "BTB", the Beethoven Trio Bonn is mastering this major challenge again and makes also this Vol. 2 to a little diamond and enjoyable CD. Thanks to BTB there is a fascinating, committed tempo and clarity, a major portion of musicality and joy in the performance.
