DCD 073 - Token Creek Beethoven

This episode we continue our survey of the Token Creek Recordings catalog. Episode #73 of the "DCD Classical 'Cast" features excerpts from two live recordings from the Token Creek Chamber Music Festival 1997 season.

The CD has two Beethoven piano trios performed by members of the Token Creek Festival. One of the goals of the festival is to present fresh performances of chamber music to make audiences take a second look at well-known works.

These live recordings are no exception. I think you'll find them enjoyable and thought-provoking.
