Dumky Trio

I thought I would end each week together by giving you insight into some of my favorite chamber works for various ensembles and exploring some new works together. To kick things off, here's a recording of the Beaux Arts Trio playing the opening movement of Dvorak's Dumky Trio. Notice how effortless Menahem Pressler (b. 1923) makes the piano part look! You can learn more about this tremendous pianist and his career by visiting his website.

I've never played this piece but have always wanted to. Any takers?

Have a great weekend everyone! We'll start our next set of adventures on Monday.
