The widespread interest both in the technical capabilities of solo instruments and in the symphony, whose formal outlines became established toward the end of the 18th century, accounts for the popularity at that time of "concertante symphonies" in which several solo instruments (strings, wind) combined to oppose the orchestra. Despite the popularity, Beethoven was correct when he wrote about his Triple Concerto "that a concertante with these three solo parts is something new." The novelty lay in the use in this connection of the piano, whose "mechanics" and the difference between whose method of tone production and that of the other instruments resulted in tonal problems. These problems arose both within the solo trio and in its relationship to the orchestra. Beethoven, who was interested throughout his whole career in experiments to extend the scope of instrumental music, here combined the styles of chamber music and of concertante symphonic writing.

A wondeful classic recording.

This recording is a classic in all senses. The soloists are splendid, Fricsay confirms the legend of an ideal conductor. Sound is very good; a little aged, what is normal. Reissues in vinyl like that brings to the vinyl cause a strong support.
