Benvenue Trio: The Little Orchestra with San Diego Early Music Society

Sometimes described as “the Little Orchestra,” the piano trio with violin and cello still captivates by offering both lyricism and musical force. Employing the fortepiano—the direct ancestor of today’s piano—and gut strings to restore the original sonic balance between the instruments, the Benvenue Fortepiano Trio offers a program of classical music by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Hummel, written in the same decade and by composer-performers who all knew and influenced each other.

“Not only does Benvenue make an exceptional case for the use of the fortepiano in place of the modern piano, but they perform with a level of gusto and brazenness seldom heard in modern instrument ensembles.”
– D. Brownell, allmusic.com
