Reflections & Dances

Among other great works, our 2023 August concert is featuring a Piano Trio by Dvorak named Dumky.
What is a Dumky, and why is it named that? Well, it is the plural of Dumka - a slavic folk ballad consisting of contrasting sections - and the whole trio is made up of six short movements of these.

Some sections are melancholy or wistful laments, followed suddenly by lively reeling dances. Each of the six movements is in a different key, winding through major and minor, exploring a variety of tonal color through all the instruments. There are some wonderful solo sections for all three parts.

We have tried to select other pieces for our program that also follow the idea of contrasting sections, in keeping with the theme. For instance the the waltz like Haydn, and the dark and mysterious Bridge.

Please join us in August, and if you do, you can enjoy some truly wonderful music. You can hear some great, and less well known, composers whose works span from the mid 18th to the mid 20th century.

We hope to see you there!
