From the humorous to the sublime: on its third GENUIN-CD the magnificent Trio Ex Aequo offers a cross section of Beethoven's works for piano trio. From an early work to the mature Ghost Trio and the delightful variations based on the melody Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu. The timbral palette of the trio (Matthias Wollong – violin, Matthias Moosdorf – cello, a member of the Leipzig String Quartet and Olga Gollej – Piano) is large and meets the enormous demands of the three works in each moment. You won’t even know which work you will first want to hear again: the pale sonorities, the fine web of the Ghost Trio or the mirth of the Kakadu, which is unequalled in Beethoven's oeuvre...

"Personal projection at the highest level predominates in Op 70 No 1. ... passion and emotional intensity are communicated within a framework of assured technical address."
