A generous and sensible coupling forming a pendant to De Vriend’s ongoing period-instrument Beethoven cycle. The 1815 Lagrasse fortepiano is wonderfully gutsy, and if the balance often favours the orchestra it is a realistic concert soundscape. The young soloists play with impressive verve and, in the beautifully-judged Largo, great poise. The trio is perhaps not quite at the same level: if the slow movement is again very impressive, faster passages are sometimes rushed.
