Last Friday saw the release of a wonderful new recording of Beethoven's Triple Concerto from violinist Isabelle Faust, cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, Alexander Melnikov on fortepiano, and the Freiburger Barockorchester conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado. Available on the Harmonia Mundi label, with which these superb artists have a long-standing relationship, it will be reviewed in the April issue of Gramophone.
