Beethoven/ Brahms: Concertos for Violin, Cello and Orchestra

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra performs this popular coupling of two major works for their latest Chandos recording. The two works complement one another as they both incorporate interplay and dialogue between two or more solo instruments.

Beethoven’s Triple Concerto for violin, cello and piano was written in 1804, and on many levels is a highly emotional work. Beethoven had now accepted his deafness, and his desire to express himself through music had returned. This richly melodic and mature work has joyful as well as bleak moments, and might be described as a piano trio with orchestral accompaniment.

In the case of the Double Concerto of Johannes Brahms, here large stretches can be considered as a piano trio in which the orchestra takes on the role of the piano.

Trio Poseidon was formed in 2002 by Sara Trobäck Hesselink, (Leader of the Gothenburg SymphonyOrchestra), Claes Gunnarsson, (Principal Cellist of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra) and pianist Per Lundberg (Professor at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm.) Since their inaugural season, Trio Poseidon has become one of the most sought after ensembles in their native Sweden.



Pizzicato Magazine (Germany) - April/May 2010

“… I am delighted to have encountered the work played with such freshness and sense of fantasy by two excellent soloists.” “…this is a disc that is well worth hearing, in good sound and with extremely interesting notes.”
Nigel Simeone
