There are five major Beethoven Piano Trios that I love so much. No 1 is the Archduke, then come the Opus 70, Nos 1 and 2. Particularly, I love that georgeous little laendler like movement in the E flat trio. Then come the Opus 1. Nos 1 and 2. I do wish that, Yo yo, and Itzhak Perlmann, and Emanuel Ax would record these works for Sony, soon. If not all the trios, just, Op. 97, and Opus 70. Also, I do hope that president Obama, and Michelle, reinstitute the great White House concerts that began in the Kennedy Administration. I heard, Rudolf Serkin who was my favourite musician in the 20th century, and the director of the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, where I first saw Yo yo Ma. Even back in the late 70’s, we the audience knew he was going to be one of the great ones.Wily Willie.
