Built around Smetana’s famous piano trio, one of the most renowned in Czech chamber music, this recording highlights two more confidential composers from the land of Bohemia, Zdeněk Fibich and Vítězslav Novák. Their trios, true gems of the repertoire, have not yet been recorded by a French trio ; this album intends to revive the brilliance of these poignant works, both of which reflect the intensity of this Mittel Europa at the meeting point of the 19th and 20th centuries.
