Archduke Trio

Last month for Fine Arts Chamber Players' 2020 Basically Beethoven Festival-in-Place I recorded Beethoven's "Archduke" Trio Op. 97, dedicated in 1811 to the musical Archduke Rudolf (1788-1831), youngest child of Emperor Leopold II. The video of the performance, which also includes the "Spring" Sonata Op. 24 and the "Heiliger dankgesang" movement of the Op. 132 Quartet, is now available online. I managed to work some monarchical context into my program notes video.
