In Haydn’s 45 piano trios written over a period of more than 30 years the piano essentially holds the dominant role – something made necessary by its relative tonal weakness at the time. In this programme we hear an example from 1790. Haydn scholar Gretchen A. Wheelock finds the ‘incredible’ late works ‘brilliantly virtuosic, exploiting the full idiomatic range of the instrument. They are also among the most harmonically adventurous of his works in any genre.’
