Kinsky Trio Prague piano trio

Arensky Trio No 1 in D minor
Martinů Bergerettes Nos 1,3 & 4
Smetana Trio in G minor Op.15

The Kinsky Trio Prague was founded in 1994 by violinist Lucie Sedláková Hůlová and cellist Martin Sedlák. Together with pianist Veronika Böhmová, the musicians specialise in performing the work of Eastern European composers. Our interesting programme starts with Russian composer Arensky’s glorious first piano trio, which features the cello line, having been written to commemorate a cellist friend of the composer.

Czech folk rhythms drive Martinů’s Bergerettes in a lively suite. The musicians have chosen to complete our programme with Czech composer Smetana’s only work for piano trio. The trio, composed to commemorate his beloved and very musical daughter, explores emotional themes culminating in a wild Rondo.

‘The Kinsky Trio Prague is one of the outstanding
Czech ensembles of the younger generation'
