Smetana Trio nominated for the BBC Music Magazine Awards
Smetana Trio’s album published by Supraphon in 2016 is nominated for the BBC Music Magazine Awards! This album featuring the complete piano trios by Bohuslav Martinů will compete with the Escher String Quartet (Mendelssohn‘s String Quartets Nos 5 & 6) and Danish String Quartet (Adès‘s Arcadiana, Nørgård‘s Quartetto Breve and Abrahamsen‘s 10 Preludes). The winning recordings will be announced at a ceremony at London’s Kings Place on Wednesday 19 April.
„These are quite simply benchmark performances of these life-affirming works. The Smetana Trio proves hugely responsive to the Czech composer Martinů’s characteristic sprung rhythms, effervescent humour and contrasting moments of introspective lyricism. It’s an intoxicating mixture that leaves you puzzled as to why such incredible music has not yet established itself firmly in the repertory.“
