Beethoven's first "official" piece: Marie Desgoutte, Hristo Kouzmanov and Johannes Tolle dedicate their next concert to Beethoven's Trio in E-flat Major, op. 1 No. 1. The Viennese "Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung" particularly liked Opus 1 "because in it, as in few others, the joyful youth of the master is still reflected unclouded, lightly and frivolously".
Contrasting with Beethoven's "day-bright" piece is Schubert's Adagio in E-flat Major, Op. 148, later nicknamed the "Notturno."
Two charming duo compositions by Clara and Robert Schumann complete the program: Clara's Romanzen op. 22, which were first printed in 1983 after a long dormancy, and Robert's "5 Stücke im Volkston" op. 102.
