Piano Trio No 4 in C major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This is the third and best known of Berwald’s piano trios (there are five in all). The first, like the trio recorded here, is in C major, and is unnumbered. It dates from 1845, the same year as the Sinfonie singulière and the Symphony No 4 in E flat. The remaining trios were composed in relatively rapid succession: No 1 in E flat in 1849, No 2 in F minor in March 1851, and No 3 in December the same year. The Piano Trio No 4 in C major was composed in 1853, the same year as the C minor Quintet. Like all its companions, save for the F minor Trio, it is in three movements. In 1867 Berwald offered the score without success to the Leipzig publisher Schuberth, who had published its three predecessors, and his widow later tried to interest the same house in this and a number of his other unpublished scores, but the work had to wait until 1896 when a Copenhagen publisher brought it out.
