Product Description

Amazon.com

Dvorák composed four piano trios, and all of them are fine works. The very last, the so-called "Dumky" Trio, has eclipsed the others in popularity, which is a pity, particularly with respect to the Trio No. 3 in F minor. This work, composed at exactly the same time as the Seventh Symphony, is clearly the finest work of its type since Beethoven--and that includes the three trios of Brahms. Perfectly proportioned, emotionally intense, and chock full of incredible tunes, it grabs you from the first note and never lets you go. The Beaux Arts Trio performs all of this music with their customary musicality and expertise, and the "twofer" price in unbeatable. Now try that Trio No. 3--you'll be glad you did. --David Hurwitz

The tempo is equally integrated and their phrasing, all go to make a remarkable music experience.

Format: Audio CD
Dvorak is famous for the cheerful Czech rhythms that abound so persuasively in his Slavonic Dances of the 1870s. Yet most of these trios temper that cheerful side with a dramatic eloquence that borders on the mournful. Dvorak wrote his G minor trio shortly after the death of his newborn daughter, Josefina, and you can almost feel as if the desperate and frenetic energy in the Scherzo is Dvorak's attempt to bury his grief in the healing salve of his music.

This is not to say that these recordings are outwardly depressing - simply more pensive and meditative than some of his other works. The Dumky is a perfect example. The term Dumky comes from a Czech word roughly translated as "to ponder or brood", and the Dumky ably embodies that mood. The cello often leads with somber rumination before the other instruments join in.

The trio in F minor, however is easily the supernova among all these wonderful trio stars. Now there are many people who praise the Dumky with great gusto without saying a peep about the other trios. Sometimes I want to smack these people, and if you listen to the trio in F minor you'll know what I mean. If you listen you'll notice that the F minor trio is melodically much stronger than the Dumky and much more poignant. Of all the trios, this is the one that embeds itself in the psyche and won't let go.

All in all the primary reason to own this recording is for the lushly expressive F minor work. Additionally, those with a special fondness for the cello will find satisfaction here. Dvorak wrote what is arguably the best cello concerto of all time; but here in these trios, he engages the cello's strengths just as skillfully.

The beaux arts' performances of these trios, like most recordings of their golden period, wih Cohen and Greenhouse, set a benchmark, for both the technical as well as the emotional depth in the interpritation of chamber music... Their tension and beauty, particularly of Isidore Cohen's distinctive tone, thrills the heart, as much as the ear.

Format: Audio CD
This is yet another excellent compilation of the great recordings made by the Beaux Arts Trio when its lineup included Isidore Cohen as violinist and Bernard Greenhouse as cellist as well as pianist Menahem Pressler. These are lively, exciting performances replete with warmth and Slavic charm, gracefully played by these exceptional musicians. Of course, the highlight is their exquisite performance of the "Dumky" trio, but the others are equally compelling. This is one of the highlights of my CD collection of Dvorak's music; it should be yours too.

This 1969 recording of the Dvorak Trios is exquisitely well played, originally recorded, and later transferred to CD. The 1996 transfer to digital should prove to all the sonic excellence of well-recorded analog tape. There is hardly any discernable tape noise, excellent miking, excellent instrument sound, great ambience, etc. This is a top quality recording in terms of the engineering arts. It is wonderful that the master tapes of excellent analog recordings like this were so well preserved.

The performances are similarly excellent, as one would expect from the Beaux Arts Trio. Pressler, Cohen and Greenhouse work together perfectly and also bring out the individuality of the parts wonderfully. It's clear that Dvorak's approaches to the trio evolved over the course of the four compositions, culminating in the strongly-slavic "Dumky". Re-listening to the third trio in F minor, it may be my favorite for it's coherence, expressiveness and poignant beauty. The Dumky is more of a meditation on several Slavic themes. The earlier trios may be more likely to bear some similarity to Germanic works such as Brahms'. In all of Dvorak's trios, there is a freedom and dynamic approach to the themes that feels more open-minded, cosmopolitan and universal. Where composers like Beethoven at times appear to rebel against the confines of their German culture, Dvorak inhabits a broader world as a wide-eyed explorer. Dvorak's result is liberating and refreshing.

These trios have stylistic roots in a European tradition, but feel like distinctly new music. Perhaps Dvorak's time visiting, conducting and composing in America has some influence on his worldly viewpoint.

Format: Audio CD
Dvorak's immense talent as composer of chamber works deserve to him, even a major status that most of people tend to estimate. The spirit of eloquency, sheer lyricism and brisky musicality make of this set a true must-have.

Don't miss this set under any pretext.

In 1969, The Beaux Arts Trio made a truly stellar recording of these beautiful trios by Dvorak that has stood alone, ever since. There is a remarkable balance of timbre among the instruments, without that excessive "edge", as in the Guarneri trio recording of these Dvorak works. The tempo is equally integrated and their phrasing, all go to make a remarkable music experience. The Philips sound engineering is crystal clear without "pushing" the sound. What a delight and bargain price. Enjoy!
