Celebrating the 250th anniversary of his birth, Sony Music Entertainment presents four major reissues devoted to Ludwig van Beethoven in its series of Classical Masters. Among the treasures in these new budget-priced sets are the complete symphonies, string quartets and violin sonatas performed by illustrious musicians of the past century. Included in this batch is a widely varied 5-CD box of chamber music, recorded in the 1990s by two outstanding period-instrument ensembles. L’Archibudelli, performing on gut strings, are heard in Beethoven’s 3 Trios, op. 9, where “the playing could scarcely be more sprightly and volatile … They communicate their own relish of the music” (Gramophone), as well as in the famous “Ghost” and “Archduke” Piano Trios – with noted fortepianist Jos van Immerseel – and numerous lesser-known yet fascinating works. The American wind ensemble Mozzafiato is directed by the outstanding clarinettist Charles Neidich. Their single disc features the Octet op. 103, in which Gramophone praised the group’s “robust, full-bodied tone-quality … The oboe and bassoon solos which open the Andante second movement sound heavenly; the Minuet and Trio is cheerfully witty … and, in the Rondino, WoO 25, they deliciously reveal the music’s textural diversity.” In the Sextet op. 71, “Neidich’s clarinet playing, in particular, is absolutely stupendous … and his mellifluous virtuosity … is well matched by the other performers to demonstrate this group’s fine soloist skills as well as their strong corporate identity. Enchanting performances of the March, WoO 29 and the Duo for clarinet and bassoon, WoO 27 No. 1 complete Mozzafiato’s delightful and immensely enjoyable concert.”CD 1Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in E-flat major op. 3Serenade (Trio) for Violin, Viola and Cello in D major op. 8L’ArchibudelliCD 2Piano Trio in B-flat major “Archduke” op. 97Piano Trio in D major “Ghost” op. 70/1Jos van Immerseel fortepiano · Vera Beths violin · Anner Bylsma celloCD 3Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in G major op. 9/1Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in D major op. 9/2Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in C minor op. 9/3L’ArchibudelliCD 4Sextet for 2 Violins, Viola, Cello and 2 Horns in E-flat major op. 81bDuo for Viola and Cello in E-flat major “Duett mit zwei obligaten Augengläsern” WoO 32Quintet for 2 Violins, Viola and 2 Cellos in A majorL’Archibudelli · Ab Koster & Knut Hasselmann natural hornsCD 5Octet for 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Horns and 2 Bassoons in E-flat major op. 103Rondino for 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Horns and 2 Bassoons in E-flat major WoO 25March for 2 Clarinets, 2 Horns and 2 Bassoons in B-flat major WoO 29Duo for Clarinet and Bassoon in C major WoO 27/1Sextet for 2 Clarinets, 2 Horns and 2 Bassoons in E-flat major op. 71Mozzafiato · Charles Neidich director
