The Stockholm Arts Trio
Franz Schubert

As part of the bicentenary celebration of the birth of Franz Schubert (1797 - 1828) we have the pleasure of releasing two of his compositions for piano trio. The Trio in B Flat Major, Op. 99, D-898 generally considered to be one of Schubert's masterpieces of chambe music. Also included is a rare recording of "Sonata" in B Flat Major, D-28, for piano trio, which was composed by Schubert when he was only 15 years old.

The members of The Stockholm Arts Trio are individually all winners of international competitions, and together are considered to be one of Sweden's outstanding chamber music ensembles. Since 1988 they have toured internationally, including annual tours of the USA and regular performances in Germany and England.

"When in addition the music is playd so superbly as by Dan Almgren violin, Torleif Thedéen cello and Stefan Bojsten piano, then it leaves nothing to be desired. The sound quality is also splendid. What presence!"
