Master Haydn, Student Beethoven
The Masters

Continuing the practice of recording concerts live, NY Philomusica recorded this program at Merkin Concert Hall, NY. Two previous albums were recorded at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, Nos. 1 and 16. This CD is the opener of an exciting series we call "The Live Concerts."

Programming its season around the C.O.R.E.
(Composers of Recognized Eminence) repertory, on this
CD NY Philomusica examines the progression from youth
to experience of one of the greatest composers in history
and juxtaposes it with the mature work of his mentor.
Near the beginning of his career, Beethoven traveled to
Vienna to study with Haydn, at which time, Haydn was
establishing the piano trio as the preeminent musical form among high society. Haydn''s influence is clearly visible in Beethoven''s Piano Trio Op. 1, No. 2. Such was
Beethoven''s confidence in the success of this work that
he offered it, along with two other trios in the opus, as his first published work, and its appeal has endured over time. Composed towards the end of his long career, Haydn''s Piano Trio in G, Hob. XV: 25, exhibits an utterly superior confidence, and an ease with the form he had by now honed to perfection. Known as one of Haydn''s most beloved works, this trio underlines both the similarities and the differences between Haydn and his student. Later, in his Piano Trio Op. 70, No. 2, Beethoven replaced the bombastic drama of youth with mature introspection, along with the brilliant exploitation of each instrumentalist''s capabilities at the limit of technical possibility. Following their instincts and driven by that talent that has since been certified ''genius,'' these two composers wrote music that redefined the language of the piano, violin and ''cello, creating beautiful works that remain favorites of audiences today.
