About the Ensemble
Czech Trio, an ensemble of superlative quality, is widely known as a foremost representative of the famous Czech tradition of chamber music interpretation, whose history stretches as far back as the 1890s when the first ensemble of this name was formed. The trio gives dozens of concerts a year, both at home and abroad. Apart from regular appearances in Europe it has became a firm favorite with audiences in the USA and in Japan. It also is a regular guest at important international festivals.
What the music critiques appreciate particularly in the Czech Trio's concert performances and recordings is, that though the group consists of such strong player personalities, their ensemble is very compact; moreover, they laud the masterly performances, the purity of musical style, the warmth and depth of expression, as well as the players' spontaneity and temperament. The ensemble has often been called an ideal interpreter of Czech music in particular. Besides the world composers, the centre-point of the Czech Trio's repertoire does actually lie predominantly in music by Czech composers.
Compact discs for a Czech company "Arco Diva" are also proof of this fact - the ensemble recorded compositions both of the Czech and the world trio repertoire here.
All three members of the ensemble are sought-after teachers at the Prague Conservatoire or Academy of Performing Arts. The Czech Trio follows up on the work of previous famous trios of that name, the members of which have been spreading the fame of the art of Czech music interpretation in almost uninterrupted sequence since 1897.
