Trio in G Major WoO37-FL/BSN/PN

Composer: Beethoven, Ludwig van

Publisher: Henle

Edition: 343


Trio in G Major WoO37
for flute, bassoon, and piano
by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)- German composer
I. Allegro
II. Adagio
III. Theme & Variations
Edited by Friedhelm Klugmann. The Trio for flute, bassoon, and piano was composed during Beethoven's Bonn period between 1786 and 1790. However, the words, "age 14" added to the last page of the autograph would appear to signify an even earlier date, presuming the statement of age to be accurate. The somewhat unusual instrument combination is attributed to the fact that the work was intended for Baron Fr. L.A. von Westerholt-Gysenberg and his family. The Baron himself played bassoon, the flautist in the family was his son, Wilhelm, and their daughter was an accomplished pianist, and a pupil of Beethoven. The composition remained unpublished in Beethoven's lifetime, and first appeared in 1888.
