BEETHOVEN’S FIRST STRING TRIOS Beethoven wrote five pieces for string trio, all during the 1790s. This album presents the first two, which with their six and seven movements, respectively, are larger-scale works than the later trios in opus 9. One can trace a direct line from String Trio in E-Flat major, op. 3 back to Mozart’s masterpiece, Divertimento for String Trio, K. 563, published a few years earlier. The latter composition was among the first works for this instrumentation. Like his predecessor, Beethoven chose E-Flat major for the piece, while using the same placement of the minuets as movements three and five, and adding an extra trio movement. Serenade, op. 8 opens and closes with a march and is otherwise characterized by contrasts and variations. Both pieces were written by a young Beethoven exploring new territory, and in the hands of experienced and inspired musicians the result is superb. Ssens Trio was established in 2014 by three distinguished musicians with a wealth of experience in the international music scene. They were brought together by their mutual fascination with chamber music and the delight they share in exploring the string trio repertoire. Violinist Sølve Sigerland and cellist Ellen Margrete Flesjø are both founding members of the Grieg Trio. Together and individually they have received glowing reviews for performances in Europe, the USA and Asia. Henninge Landaas is co-principal viola of Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and was for years a member of the internationally renowned Vertavo String Quartet. This is their first release as Ssens Trio.
