 Pablo Held Trio Ensemble

Dvorák’s four surviving Piano Trios are cornerstones of the repertory. No. 3 was completed early in 1883, shortly after the death of the composer’s mother. Though there are inevitably moments tinged with sadness, as in the poignant third movement, there is also tender lyricism and strong nervous energy. Formed of six dumky (the dumka was in origin a Ukrainian lament), the ‘Dumky’ Trio is one of Dvorák’s most original and popular works. Offering a seemingly endless variety of mood and texture, each movement incorporates a slow and melancholy section alternating with one which is faster, dance-like and cheerful.

 "...…one can’t argue the results achieved by the Tempest’s players. What immediately grabbed my attention were not just their hair-trigger rhythmic reactions, their technical prowess, their sublimated responsiveness to each other’s phrasing and dynamics, their refulgent tone, and their radiant vibrancy, but also their refreshing take on certain details of interpretation.... This is a serious candidate for my annual Want List, and I would urge you with special pleading to acquire this release for what may well be the best Dvorák “Dumky” on disc ever. I would also urge Naxos with special pleading to engage the Tempest Trio in recording the whole of the mainstream piano trio literature as soon as possible."
