About the album

The young Van Baerle Trio, made of stunning soloists – Hannes Minnaar on piano, Maria Milstein on violin and Gideon den Herder on cello – have accomplished the Beethoven’s Piano Trio recordings. Now, Challenge Classics releases a box including the five volumes of their remarkable survey. It includes the three youthful Trios op. 1, the two great Trios op. 70, the absolute masterpiece which is the Trio op. 97, named ‘Archduke’.

Together with such ‘official’ and original works, there are also Beethoven’s own transcriptions of his own works: the Clarinet Trio op. 11, the Trio arrangements of the Septet op. 20 and of the Sympony no. 2. You will also find some light, occasional pieces like the Allegrettos in E-flat and in B-flat, the Variations op. 44 and op. 121a. The most unexpected work included in the box is the Triple Concerto, as the musicians consider it as a real piece of ‘augmented’ chamber music.

Fanfare: “I believe this is one of the great piano trio performances in the history of recording. This is a recording that should be in everyone's collection.”

Gramophone: “The effect is liberating and, in these joyous, playful performances, utterly refreshing. The effect is of real chamber music – up close and very personal.”

MusicWeb International: “To my ears the Van Baerle Trio is amongst the top rank in terms of performance and recorded quality.”
Luister: “The second volume is also exceptionally good. With great mastery, the Van Baerle Trio balances perfectly on the border between symphonic grandeur and chamber music transparency.”

In drie jaar tijd kregen de jonge begenadigde musici van het Van Baerle trio het voor elkaar om vijf cd’s uit te brengen met alle pianotrio’s van Ludwig van Beethoven. De opnames en het spel van pianist Hannes Minnaar, violiste Maria Milstein en cellist Gideon den Herder werden de hemel in geprezen door pers en publiek. Terecht, het is zeldzaam zo volledig als dit trio op elkaar is ingespeeld, je hoort de ervaring en de bevlogenheid en hoe het drietal Beethoven doorgrond heeft. En nu, in 2020, is er dan een verzamelbox, met de vijf cd’s, die garant staat voor uren luisterplezier.

Het muziekblad Gramophone over de opnamen: "Het effect is bevrijdend en in deze vrolijke, speelse uitvoeringen, uiterst verfrissend. Het voelt als echte kamermuziek – dichtbij en heel persoonlijk."

Deze box, uitgebracht door Challenge Records, is een mooie hommage aan Beethovens 250ste geboortejaar en bevat een opmerkelijk en compleet overzicht van de pianotrio’s van de componist. Zoals de drie Pianotrio’s op. 1, de eerste composities die Beethoven belangrijk genoeg vond om er een opusnummer aan toe te kennen. Verder de twee grote Pianotrio’s op. 70 en het absolute meesterwerk Pianotrio op. 97, ook wel de 'Aartshertog' genoemd.

Naast de 'officiële' en originele werken heeft het Van Baerle Trio ook Beethovens transcripties van zijn eigen werken opgenomen: het Klarinettrio op. 11, de Trio arrangementen van het Septet op. 20 en van de Symfonie nr. 2. Maar ook enkele lichte gelegenheidsstukken als de Allegretto's in es en bes, en de Variaties op. 44 en op. 121a. Het meest ongewone werk in de box is het Tripelconcert, omdat de musici het zien als een echt 'uitgebreid' stuk kamermuziek.

Pianist Hannes Minnaar speelt op een bijzonder instrument, een Chris Maene Concert Grand, gebouwd in 2017. Hierin zijn de kennis en materialen van de moderne pianobouw gecombineerd met die van oudere, historische instrumenten. De klank van deze symbiose van oud en nieuw was een inspiratiebron bij het opnemen van Beethovens pianotrio's.

Hannes Minnaar, Maria Milstein en Gideon den Herder richtten het Van Baerle Trio in 2004 op. De naam van het trio is ontleend aan de straat waar hun muzikale wortels liggen: de Van Baerlestraat in Amsterdam. Daar ontmoetten ze elkaar tijdens hun studie aan het Conservatorium van Amsterdam, op een steenworp afstand van het Concertgebouw, dat het trio als zijn muzikale thuis beschouwt. Inmiddels heeft het trio een gevestigde reputatie opgebouwd in binnen- en buitenland.
Das junge Van Berle Trio, bestehend aus begnadeten Solisten - Hannes Minnaar am Klavier, Maria Milstein an der Violine und Gideon den Herder am Cello - haben zuletzt Beethovens Klaviertrios aufgenommen. Jetzt veröffentlicht Challenge ein Boxset, das die fünf CDs ihrer bemerkenswerten Studie einschließt. Es beinhaltet die drei jugendlichen Trios Op. 1, die zwei großen Trios Op. 70, sowie das absolute Meisterwerk Op. 97, das 'Erzherzog'-Trio.

Zusammen mich solch 'offiziellen' und originellen Werken findet man hier auch Beethovens Transkriptionen eigener Werke: das Klarinettentrio, Op. 11, die Trioarrangements des Septetts, Op. 20 und der Symphonie Nr. 2, sowie einige leichte Gelegenheitsstücke wie die Allegrettos in Es-Dur und B-Dur und die Variationen Op. 44 und Op. 121a. Das ungewöhnlichste Werk dieser Box ist das Tripelkonzert, denn die Musiker betrachten es als wahres Werk 'erweiterter' Kammermusik.

Fanfare: 'Ich glaube, dies ist eine der großen Triointerpretationen in der Geschichte der Tonaufnahme. Es ist eine Aufnahme, die in jede Sammlung gehört.'

Gramophone: 'Der Effekt ist befreiend und, in diesen freudigen, verspielten Interpretationen, äußerst erfrischend. Der Effekt ist der wahrhaftiger Kammermusik - ganz nah und sehr persönlich.'

MusicWeb International: 'In meinen Ohren zählt das Van Baerle Trio zu den besten was Interpretation und Aufnahmequalität angeht.'

Luister: 'Die zweite CD ist ebenfalls ausnehmend gut. Meisterhaft balanciert das Van Baerle Trio perfekt auf der Grenze zwischen symphonischer Pracht und kammermusikalischer Transparenz.'

Van Baerle Trio

The Van Baerle Trio was founded in 2004 by the pianist Hannes Minnaar, violinist Maria Milstein and cellist Gideon den Herder. The name of the trio refers to the street where it all started: the Van Baerle street in Amsterdam. The three musicians met there during their studies at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, at a stone‘s throw from the Concertgebouw, which they consider as their musical home. After winning the 2011 Vriendenkrans Competition in the Concertgebouw and performing there on numerous occasions since, the Van Baerle Trio was nominated by this celebrated concert hall for ECHO Rising Stars 2013/14, a tour which brought the trio to major concert venues across Europe, including Vienna‘s Musikverein, the London Barbican, Cité de la Musique...

Before starting this European tour, the Van Baerle Trio had already established its international reputation, after being awarded top prizes at the ARD International Music Competition in Munich in 2013 and the Lyon International Chamber Music Competition in 2011, as well as receiving the audience prize at both contests. In the Netherlands the trio was awarded the Kersjes Prize, a bursary which supports an outstanding, young Dutch ensemble each year.
The Van Baerle Trio was formed under the guidance of Dmitri Ferschtman and received lessons from Ferenc Rados and Claus-Christian Schuster, among others. The encounter with Menahem Pressler in 2008 was a great inspiration to the three musicians, who subsequently played for him on several occasions. Eager to share their experience with the next generation of musicians, the trio members have been teaching at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam since 2014.
The Van Baerle Trio’s debut CD, featuring works by Saint-Saëns, Loevendie and Ravel, received an Edison Award in 2013. This CD was followed by an album dedicated to Mendelssohn’s piano trios, which includes the world premiere recording of the early version of his Piano Trio in D minor. The latest project of the Van Baerle Trio is recording the complete piano trios by Beethoven. Already four cd's appeared. The last one is nominated for the Edison Klassiek 2019, the last volume, number 5, will appear in spring 2020.

Special crossover and innovative productions are also provided at The Hague’s prominent pop venue Paard van Troje throughout the season. The Residentie Orkest performs regularly at various other major concert halls abroad. Tours have brought the orchestra to New York, Boston, Chicago, London and Vienna amongst others and the orchestra also performed in countries like Japan, China, Germany, France and South America. There are also many prolific collaborations with a wide range of partners, including the Dutch National Theatre, Gemeentemuseum and the Dutch National Opera. Recent seasons have seen a much acclaimed production of Messiaen’s rarely performed opera Saint François d’Asisse and Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites.

A rich history Since its first concert in 1904, the Residentie Orkest has developed into one of the prominent symphony orchestras of The Netherlands. Founded by Dr Henri Viotta, who was also its first principal conductor, it quickly attracted composers like Richard Strauss, Igor Stravinsky, Max Reger, Maurice Ravel, Paul Hindemith and Vincent d’Indy. Guest conductors included Arturo Toscanini, Bruno Walter, Leonard Bernstein and Hans Knappertsbusch.

After World War II, Willem van Otterloo was appointed chief conductor. He led the orchestra from 1949 to 1973 and built a strong reputation by combining high-quality performances with adventurous programming. Van Otterloo was succeeded by Jean Martinon, Ferdinand Leitner, Hans Vonk, Evgenii Svetlanov, Jaap van Zweden and Neeme Järvi.

Chief conductor Starting season 2018/2019 Nicholas Collon is chief conductor and artistic advisor of the Residentie Orkest. Richard Egarr will join the orchestra as principal guest conductor in 2019. Until the summer of 2019 Jan Willem de Vriend will act as principal conductor.

He is Principal Conductor Designate of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, and Principal Guest Conductor of the City of Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of the Stuttgart Philharmonic and Orchestre National de Lille, and former Principal Guest Conductor of the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya and the Brabant Orchestra.
For the Challenge Classics label, de Vriend and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra have recorded the complete Mendelssohn symphonies and all Beethoven’s symphonies and concertos with, among others, pianist Hannes Minnaar and violinist Liza Ferschtman. De Vriend’s interpretation of the Symphony No 7 prompted Classic FM to admire “a bounding flair that does real justice to the composer’s capacity for joy”. A further landmark of his recorded catalogue is his complete recording of the Schubert symphonies with the Residentie Orkest Den Haag.
De Vriend’s collaborative spirit is equally evident in his work for the stage, notably with opera director Eva Buchmann and Combattimento Consort Amsterdam. In addition to works by Monteverdi, Haydn, Handel and Telemann, their productions in Europe and the USA have included staged versions of Bach’s ‘Hunting’ and ‘Coffee’ Cantatas at the Bachfest Leipzig, and operas by Mozart, Rossini, Verdi and Cherubini, among them Mozart’s Don Giovanni und Rossini’s La gazzetta, both toured in Switzerland. De Vriend has also conducted operatic productions in Amsterdam (with the Nederlandse Reisopera), Barcelona, Strasbourg, Lucerne, Schwetzingen and Bergen.

His best-known compositions include nine symphonies, five piano concertos, one violin concerto, 32 piano sonatas, 16 string quartets, his great Mass the Missa solemnis, and one opera, Fidelio. Together with Mozart and Haydn, he was part of the First Viennese School.    Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven and by composer and conductor Christian Gottlob...

At the age of 21 he moved to Vienna, where he began studying composition with Joseph Haydn, and gained a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. He lived in Vienna until his death. By his late 20s his hearing began to deteriorate, and by the last decade of his life he was almost totally deaf. In 1811 he gave up conducting and performing in public but continued to compose; many of his most admired works come from these last 15 years of his life.
