Benvenue Trio: The Little Orchestra, the Genius of the Classical Piano Trio

The “Little Orchestra” is a snapshot of an early moment in the history of the evolution of the fortepiano on its way to becoming the modern grand piano. Played on original instruments, the potential balance issues inherent with the use of modern instruments in this highly refined repertoire are avoided, and the violin and cello play more equal roles, allowing the charm, wit and subtlety of these works to occur naturally. Music by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven.
