This is a nicely played, lyrical, serene performance of the Triple Concerto. I just find it possesses too much of a sense of sameness throughout. Clearly, the more spirited and dynamic first and third movements should sound distinctly different in style from the lovely middle movement largo. But in the hands of the Fontenay this doesn't happen. Their entire performance sounds too settled. Though I have no complaints about their execution on technical grounds, I don't hear much in terms of Beethovian snap and vitality. Nor are they helped much by the rather tepid leadership of conductor Inbal, who also fails to move the accompanying Philharmonia Orchestra (one of my favorites) beyond sounding merely pleasant. Overall, aside from an absence of urgency when called for, there's not much stateliness either. I also prefer things here to resound, with some hall ambience, on a bigger scale, though, I suppose, some will find this softer, more chamber-like approach more appealing. For my money, it's Kegel et al. on Capriccio or the distinguished trio of Oistrakh, Richter and Rostropovich with Karajan... With respect to the other work on this cd, the Ghost Trio, the tone of my previous comments generally applies here too, though, additionally, in some places the Fontenay seems to ramble. I experience considerably more enjoyment listening to the Stern, Istomin, Rose Trio as part of their complete set of the Beethoven Piano Trios.
