RACHMANINOFF: Trio élégiaque No.1 in G minor
MARTINŮ: Piano Trio No. 3 in C major, H. 332
- SMETANA: Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 15
The Smetana Trio, founded in the year 1934 by the legendary Czech pianist Josef Páleníček, is today one of the foremost Czech ensembles. A 2020 BBC Music Magazine Chamber Choice Award-winner, the Smetana Trio returns with a program of Martinů, Rachmaninoff, and Smetana.
Every aspect of [the Smetana Trio’s] interpretation is carefully considered without losing an ounce of spontaneity. Individual lines are remarkable for their focus and beauty, though the powerful sense of ensemble is never sacrificed to individual display.BBC Music Magazine
