JUNE 2016

Smetana trio's Martinů recording appraised by BBC Music Magazine

Smetana Trio's latest recording "The Complete Piano Trios" released by Supraphon earlier this year has been named BBC Music Magazine's Disc of the Month for this June. As reads an excerpt from the review: "…it's already obvious that the music for piano trio performed here by the Smetana Trio is going straight on the shortlist for 2016. Martinu's chamber music reveals originality at every turn; there's so much of it, but each new discovery — sonata, duo, trio, quartet, serenade — seems to unveil a gem. It's hard to imagine more ardent champions for this visceral, unpredictable music. And clear, warm sound is exactly what we've come to expect from the Supraphon label over the years.” If you still haven't had the chance to hear this true gem, make sure you listen to it now via iTunes.
