Antonín Dvořák, 1841-1904

Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 21, 1875

Antonín DvořákDvořák’s earliest surviving Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 21 offers an opportunity for discovery. He wrote six piano trios all together. The first two were discarded; Dvořák deemed them unworthy for posterity. Of the four that remain, only the last is widely celebrated: the “Dumky” Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 90. The third trio, in F minor, is dense and serious with Dvořák somewhat uncharacteristically striving towards a Germanic formalism. It is reminiscent of Brahms who was a friend, a champion of Dvořák’s music and, for a period, a musical influence. « more »
