Written as a deeply personal expression of his emotional turmoil after the death of his 4-year old daughter Bedriska, Smetana´s only piano trio also became one of the very first pieces of chambermusic in a distinct Bohemian musical style - with dance and melodic elements of folk music - breaking away from the AustroGerman tradition.
Recorded live at Wells Cedars Hall on October 16, 2016 as part of BBC Radio 3's Big Chamber Weekend.
