ANAM Chamber Music Festival: Zelenka, Smetana & Dvořák

Fri 25 November @ 19:00 - 21:00

$15 – $20

This program traverses Bohemia via the music of Zelenka, Smetana, and Dvořák. One of the most daring and original composers of his time, Zelenka pushed the boundaries of Baroque oboe with his six trio sonatas. Endlessly characterful, these works are imbued with vibrancy and colour.

Fast-forward 150 years, and a dark political backdrop underlies personal grief in Smetana’s Piano Trio. Having fled a Bohemia plagued by civil war, Smetana composed the work following the tragic death of his young daughter.

Dvořák's distinctly Czechian voice explores sonority in his quintet. The addition of the double bass to the traditional string quartet lends a special richness and depth.
