The Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 11, was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1797 and published in Vienna the next year. It is one of a series of early chamber works, many involving woodwind instruments because of their popularity and novelty at the time. The trio is scored for piano, clarinet (or violin), and cello (sometimes substituted by bassoon)

If you spend enough time with Wu Han, David Finckel, and friends, you will come closer to what music fundamentally is than most ways I know. Violin Sonatas, Book 1. Adrian Butterfield, baroque violin; Alison McGillivray, viola da gamba; Laurence Cummings, harpsichord. Trios by Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, and Shostakovich are obvious examples and Harbison's Piano Trio No. 2 (2003) is a fine addition to the tradition. A strong current of lyricism runs through it, but it is immersed in and crossed by quizzical questioning that refuses to let it control the overall mood of the work. I hope this trio finds its way into the concert repertoire one of these days and regret that the late Florestan Trio never found their way to it. The Amelia Trio seem to get all of it, so I have no complaints.
