Beethoven: "Ghost" Trio, Shostakovich Trio No. 2; Jupiter Trio (267 words)
Beethoven's trio - composed in 1809 and often referred to as "The Ghost" - was his first work in the genre in eleven years.
Those eleven years marked a seismic rupture in Beethoven's life and music: his recognition that his hearing disability was indeed progressive and likely incurable; his subsequent suicidal depression in 1802, and his rebirth/recreation of himself in 1803 as a "hero" struggling against "fate".
From the Third Symphony of 1803 on, Beethoven's music "breathes in a different world" than anything that had come before, and the "Ghost" is a perfect example of the sort of innovation and daring that marks Beethoven's mature music.
