This is a wonderful, lyrical Song without words : calm, serene, contemplative — apparently! There is a real danger that this gets pulled apart. If the violin adds too much vibrato , it turns more sweet if not tearful than the composer intended. Note that the annotation is Andante con moto tranquillo , i. That goes along with a metronome value that is considerably faster than many if not most ensembles play.
It turns out that one can just as well have singing voices in the specified tempo, but the character changes from contemplative to more urging, emotional.
Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 49, Movt. 4 (score) Sheet Music by Felix Mendelssohn
Literally every movement in this piece has a tempo issue! A good pianist may get close, but then, the fast passages easily tend to get blurred, if not superficial. Also this movement is typically heard substantially slower than specified. A real challenge for the musicians!

In order to provide a rating overview ratings Overall, I now have three entirely different recordings, covering a span of 62 years:. He does not appear to have any problems with the piano part. Note that on average, all three ensembles in this comparison play about the same tempo, slightly slower than specified by Mendelssohn. The balance is better than in the first movement.
The piano introduces the melodies. Expectedly, there is also some Zeitgeist , e. But within limits, the vibrato in general still feels harmonious here and does not affect the intonation. One actually notices one or the other superficial passage where the notes get blurred.
Haifetz appears to have focused on the Scherzo aspect. Strangely, that is not articulated consequently in this interpretation: on the piano, the crotchet appears shortened compared to how it is performed on the string instrument. Also, the movement once again demonstrates that acoustic balance in this piece is a problem with modern instruments, compounded by limitations in the recording technique.
This recording was made in September However, this recording reveals the inherent problem with playing Mendelssohn piano trios on modern instruments. In the beginning, the strings are rather loud, not p ; finally, the vibrato in the violin has a rather high amplitude, sometimes affecting the intonation. On the bright side, I like their agogics, e. The tempo is definitely too slow, not just from the metronome reading. The overall impression is Adagio tranquillo at best when heard in crotchets. When listening to this interpretation, one tends to hear quavers. The one very nice moment in this interpretation is the little cadenza at the end, where the transition from the violin to the cello and back, is really seamless, perfect!
