No idea either, would love to know.

I even glanced through every trio in B-flat (it better really be in B-flat or else they're pulling our leg) grin that I could easily find on youtube by any likely suspect composer, and I find nothing.

It's an amazingly wonderful piece for a thing that's not real familiar, isn't it....

It doesn't sound like Mozart. I think this might be a clue - what do you think? It would appear to be the Trio Sora playing Beethoven piano trios, which they appear to have just recorded. Sounds wonderful! I shall have to investigate - could be a temptation! The piano is a Pleyel.

I think it is the 1st piano trio of Beethoven Op.1 No. 1, 4th movement. I actually found their program from that concert program They also played the 6th piano trio Op 70 N2. Beautiful piece smile

Yes that's it !! I figured it was early Beethoven, but perhaps not quite that early. ha

Haha I thought it was also quite interesting to hear hist first opus. I wonder how old he was when he wrote this. However, I just read that this was not his first published work. It was actually his Dressler variations (WoO 63)

The trio was published in 1795 (probably before Beethoven turned 25 in December 1795), so it would be a safe guess to say he composed it when he was in his early 20s. smile

I actually played that piece but only the first movement and more than 60 years ago.

More than 60 years ago? You must have been a very precocious young man. grin

More like an old man who probably gave a poor performance back then. The first movement is much easier than the fourth.

Thank you, y'all!

I don't think I would have gotten it in 1000 years, even if meanwhile I heard a performance of the piece.
In fact, even after I saw your answer about what it is, it took me forever to find the exact spot in the movement.

I actually have heard the piece a lot, although not in many years. And, y'know how sometimes we might associate a piece with a particular person or ensemble? I forever connect this piece with an old college friend who happened to play this piece back then, which means over 50 years ago, which was my first acquaintance with it. I can still "see and hear" her playing the opening of this movement (in a performance of the trio, meaning the others were there too), and thinking what an usual opening it is for a movement. Unfortunately I didn't remember anything else about it, even though I heard it a number of times thereafter.

And yes, it isn't in B-flat major either grin although that part is.

Delightful movement, isn't it!
(And fabulous performance.)
