Chamber Series III Two Dramatic Piano Trios

Smetana Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 15
Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67
Piano Trio in G minor, Smetana’s first unquestionable masterpiece, was composed during an extremely difficult period in the composer’s life. It is truly a grandiose and tragic work that is not nationalistic, but profoundly personal inspiration.
