With its first of two GENUIN CDs, the Trio Boccherini proves that Beethoven's string trios are more than technical exercises by the composer along the way to writing quartets. Opus 9 is a rarely recorded and performed early work by the master, and yet they already reveal Beethoven in his entirety, as it were, in a tonally condensed form. The ensemble, comprising of members from three different continents, bring together diverse aspects of their musical experiences, culminating in this colorful yet unified interpretation.




Das Orchester
"Thus one enjoys sovereignly balanced sounds in the slow movements as well as wild contrapuntal virtuoso roaring in the scherzos or the final movements. The Trio Boccherini obviously has the necessary curiosity to question the relevance of the classical repertoire, to brush it against the grain, so to speak."
Review (in German) by Armin Kaumanns, December 2020.

WDR3 Tonart
The Boccherini Trio implements this ever-repeating, questioning, talking, hanging on to thoughts in an absolutely credible manner. This is one of the ensemble's strengths, which is evident throughout the recording.
Review (in German) by Nele Freudenberger, June 23, 2020.

Deutschlandfunk Kultur
"Heart and mind. With Trio Boccherini, the two combine organically and logically."
Review (in German) by Elisabeth Hahn, June 29, 2020.

BBC 3
On 2 May 2020 Radio BBC 3 reviewed the new CD by the Trio Boccherini. Here you can listen to the radio show.
