Formatted Abstract/Summary
Piano Trio in A Major Hob.XV:18 (1794) – Joseph Haydn
Piano Trio in D minor Hob.XV: 23 ((1795) – Joseph Haydn
Piano Trio in E flat Major Op.1 No.1 (1793/94) – Ludwig van Beethoven

A concert exploring the form of the Piano Trio from its earliest developments in the work of Joseph Haydn and the opus 1 of Ludwig van Beethoven. Haydn's piano trios number 45 works, and it was a form he returned to until the end of his life. Strangely, they are generally under-represented on the concert hall platform, most likely stemming from a perception of their 'regressive style', notably in the tethering of the piano and cello bass lines. Through performer introduction and performance, the audience was shown how how Haydn's idea of adding violin and cello was to create a 'super' piano sonata, where his compositional fantasia was given full flight, and how modern misconceptions have limited our exposure to a large body of work covering the entirety of the compositional career of one of the luminaries of Western Music.
