From Haydn, the father of the symphony, to St. Beethoven, listen to the musical traditions of the Viennese Classical School. The three German and Austrian masters have both inheritance and innovative spirit. They all centered on Vienna. Haydn created an era of music history here. Mozart showed his talents in this art capital as an independent musician. Beethoven left outstanding works that are worshiped by later generations. In the period of classicism, the trio became unique as a genre of chamber music. With the popularization of the piano in the 18th century, the "piano trio" with richer and more diverse musical textures not only attracted the attention of composers, but also aroused music interest.

Especially for Beethoven, the piano, violin and cello have achieved a balanced aesthetic. .
