Trio Ostertag formed with the goal of rejuvenating the concert life of Beethoven’s String Trios. No less important than his String Quartets (but far less often performed), these amazing pieces demand the utmost perfection from the players. These live recordings from Trio Ostertag especially capture the joyful character they bring to the music, and a perfect introduction for new listeners.
