Piano Trios Opp. 70

Piano Trios Opp. 70 by Ludwig van Beethoven
Released: Feb 2002
Label: Warner Classics
Recorded at the height of du Pre's career, this recording of Beethoven trios astounds with youthful bravado, panache and perhaps a bit of theatricality. Her husband Daniel Barenboim, on piano, commands the lead while du Pre and violinist Pinkas Zuckerman rhapsodize with wildly fluctuating tempi and lush vibrato. A strict Beethoven it is not, but an absolutely intense musical experience with each note (especially the pizzicati) it surely is.
