Smetana Trio


Jan Talich – violin
Jan Páleníček – cello
Jitka Čechová – piano
V. Novák, B. Martinů, L. van Beethoven

Founded by the legendary Czech pianist Josef Páleníček in 1934, the Smetana Trio is one of the most prestigious Czech ensembles of today. In their interpretation, the present members draw on the ideal built by their predecessors. The concert of the Smetana Trio at the Pardubice Music Spring Festival features key works of three composers whose anniversaries we celebrate this year: 150 years since the birth of Vítězslav Novák, 130 years since the birth of Bohuslav Martinů, 250 years since the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven.
