Smetana - Friends of Chamber Music

Smetana Trio

February 26, 2019 8:00pm The Vancouver Playhouse, 600 Hamilton St.

Sergei Rachmaninoff: Trio élégiaque No 1
Bohuslav Martinů: Bergerettes (piano trio), H275
Antonín Dvořák: Piano Trio No 4 in E minor, Opus 90, “Dumky”

This longstanding and musically exciting Czech group makes its second appearance for the Friends. We are pleased to welcome these musicians back again, with a programme that is both melodious and relatively modern, presenting the folk-dance dynamism of Dvořák’s “Dumky” trio, Martinů’s “Bergerettes”, and an early Romantic work by Rachmaninoff.
