Composed at a time when the keyboard trio was increasingly becoming for Haydn a preferred means of exploring new and highly personal musical grounds in the field of chamber music, these works exhibit all the wit, charm and verve we have come to expect from this most prolific composer. The "Franz Joseph Trio" has undertaken in Montreal the performance of Haydn’s complete keyboard trios.

"...these are technically well turned out performances. Musically, the trio keeps the lightest, most delicate of touches; any heavy-handedness would ruin the spritely, gamine effect of these pieces. I hope that Atma decides to record additional Haydn trios with these players."
