Much of Joseph Haydn's musical life was spent in service at the palace of Eszterháza on the Hungarian plains, a complex of buildings to rival Versailles in magnificence. Haydn's reputation abroad was, however, already considerable by 1790, and he was invited to travel to London where the delightfully lively and at times brilliantly virtuosic trios Hob. XV:16 and 19 were published. Further trios from the 1760s express music of sheer joy, all performed here by the acclaimed Oberlin Trio.
The Naxos edition of Haydn's Piano Trios has already established itself as a market leader, with acclaim for the first three volumes with the Kungsbacka Trio indicating that they 'need fear nothing in comparison' (Gramophone) with any competitors, and were 'the Haydn of choice' for Fanfare.
