Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy
Ludwig van Beethoven
Tr. 1 Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Trio c minor op. 1 No. 3
Tr. 5 Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Piano Trio No. 1 d minor op. 49
Josef Suk, János Starker and Rudolf Buchbinder made guest appearance at the Schwetzingen SWRFestival in 1973 - three internationally known, even famous presented two of the most celebrated works of the piano trio repertoire. Suk and Starker had previously enjoyed great success in the 1960s as a piano trio together with pianist Julius Katchen, prior to his death in 1969. For this concert from May 1973, the two experienced instrumentalists chose the then only 27-year-old Rudolf Buchbinder as their pianist. Their decision has become one of the great moments of chamber music-making, full of sensitive - and when necessary - forceful music-making. This is also a fitting tribute to the late cellist János Starker, whom we lost last year.
