Beethoven’s Piano Trio No. 5 is often called the “Ghost Trio” due to the spectral atmosphere of the second movement. His Oboe Trio, along with Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No. 2, are both early testaments to the precocious composers’ mastery of chamber ensemble writing. Published amid speculation of a rivalry with Debussy, Ravel’s work sets the poetry of Stéphane Mallarmé to a concise yet deeply ethereal score.
