Piano Trio No. 4; “Dumky”; ranking among Antonín Dvorák’s most celebrated works; is one of the most frequently recorded chamber pieces there is. After attending a performance; with the composer on the piano; Leoš Janácek summed up his impressions succinctly: “A new source of light has flashed.” When it comes to Piano Trio No. 3; the renowned Vienna-based critic Eduard Hanslick called it a gem; demonstrating that Dvorák was “one of the best modern masters”. Piano Trios No. 1 and 2; however; have been scarcely performed. In this light; the complete recording of Dvorák’s piano trios is a project richly deserving attention. All the more so due to the artists who have made it: Boris Giltburg; winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition and one of the world’s most distinguished contemporary pianists; alongside Veronika Jarušková and Peter Jarušek; members of the globally celebrated Pavel Haas Quartet; who have earned great recognition for performing Dvorák’s music – Gramophone Recording of the Year (quartets) and Gramophone Chamber Award (quintets; together with Giltburg). The three musicians featured on the album manifest an incredible chime. Possessing the uttermost technical brilliance; they breathe as one. The album was made at the studios in the picturesque Wye Valley; straddling the border between England and Wales; under the supervision of the legendary producer Andrew Keener while London was celebrating the coronation of Charles III. Exceptional moments for Dvorák’s exceptional music... Giltburg – Jarušková – Jarušek: A truly one-off Dvorák festivity.
