Beethoven – Ghost Trio – Barenboim, Piano; Zukerman, Viola; du Pré, Cello

The Ghost trio in D major for piano, violin and cello, is one of Beethoven’s best known works in the genre (rivaled only by the Archduke Trio). Because of its strangely scored and undeniably eerie-sounding slow movement, it was dubbed the Ghost Trio. The name has stuck with the work ever since. The ghostly music may have had its roots in sketches for a Macbeth opera that Beethoven was contemplating at the time. – Daniel Barenboim WikipediaDaniel Barenboim Website  – Pinchas Zukerman Wikipedia – Jacqueline du Pré Wikipedia
