Piano Trios, Opp.49, 66 (urtext, parts and score) by Felix Mendelssohn

Revised urtext edition by Ernst Herttrich. Published by Henle

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) is one of the most important German composers of the Romantic era. He was most comfortable composing in a charming, relatively conservative style influenced by the Classical period and free from many of the developing trends of the Romantic Era, while incorporating important innovations in many works. He also held a singular position in German musical life as the founder of the Leipzig Conservatory, a prominent conductor of the renowned Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and a seminal figure in the revival of the music and legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Mendelssohn's two piano tríos stand tall in his chamber output. Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op.49 (1839) is one of his crowning achievements in chamber music, a piece that led Robert Schumann to declare him ''the Mozart of the 19th century, the most brilliant of musicians.'' His Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor, Op.66 (1845) is a chamber favorite, with romantic ardor and passion alongside a fantastical scherzo. This excellent Henle urtext edition contains both trios, with piano scores and parts for violin and cello as well as critical commentary and historical background. Advanced level, Grade 5.
