An offspring of the Baroque trio sonata, the piano trio—usually denoting a work for piano, violin, and cello—was still in its infancy when Beethoven penned his first essay in the genre around 1791. Although he declined to assign an opus number to the early Trio in E-flat major (which would be published posthumously in 1830), the composer reportedly considered it “one of his worthiest experiments in the art of composition.”

Daniel Barenboim founded his trio with his son Michael Barenboim and the cellist Kian Soltani in 2016. The ensemble made its debut that same year at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and in the 2017–18 season first performed Beethoven’s complete piano trios at the Pierre Boulez Saal Berlin, combined with contemporary works. In the same hall, the Daniel Barenboim Trio recorded these two concerts performing the seven piano trios, just right before the Covid-19 pandemic in December 2019.
