Czech Chamber Music Society Trio Wanderer

Czech Chamber Music Society ⬩ Trio Wanderer

From Ukrainian the word "dumka" spread into Slavic languages, denoting a melancholic folk ballad. However, dumkas also penetrated the works of the most important composers, including Antonín Dvořák. His Piano Trio No. 4 is one of his most admired chamber works. The world-famous French ensemble Trio Wanderer will perform them in a purely Czech programme.

The Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů spent more than half his life beyond the borders of his homeland. It may have been for this very reason that felt such a strong bond to the Czech school of composition. In 1945 in New York, recalling earlier years, he noted in his diary: “What I went to France to find was not Debussy or Impressionism or even musical expression, but rather the real foundations on which Western culture rests […] The Czech elements I brought along to France were not destroyed. Instead, they were supported and augmented by awareness and were put into organic order, which (I think I am not mistaken) is merely following the line begun by Smetana and Dvořák.”
