The Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97, by Ludwig van Beethoven is a piano trio completed in 1811. It is commonly referred to as the Archduke Trio, because it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the youngest of twelve children of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor. Rudolf was an amateur pianist and a patron, friend, and composition student of Beethoven. Beethoven dedicated a total of fourteen compositions to the Archduke, who dedicated one of his own to Beethoven in return.
Beethoven's Archduke Trio is quite possibly the greatest trio ever written. Consequently, there have been many recordings of it made by big name artists. But no performance of this masterpiece which I've heard surpasses this recording by Jaime Laredo, Sharon Robinson (married to Laredo), and Joseph Kalichstein. These three artists - each of whom, although not "famous," is an outstanding musician - play together almost intuitively and with superb artistry. I highly recommend this recording and other recordings by this outstanding group of artists.
