String Trios Op. 9 Nos. 1-3:G Major/D Major/Cminor
• For their second release on BIS the Trio Zimmermann play Beethoven’s String Trios Op.9 – a set of three that the composer himself upon their completion described as the finest of his works.
• With their concentrated sonority, intense drama and striking formal disposition, the Op.9 trios mark the highlight as well as the end of Beethoven’s production for string trio before he went on to compose quartets instead.
• With each of its members enjoying distinguished solo careers, Trio Zimmermann is truly a world-class ensemble. Frank Peter Zimmermann, Antoine Tamestit and Christian Poltéra first joined forces in 2007, and have since performed together in the most important musical centres of Europe, including the Salzburg and Edinburgh Festivals.
• The trio’s first recording, of Mozart’s Divertimento K563 (BIS-SACD-1817), was released in 2010 and has met with worldwide critical acclaim.
