Recognized as the premiere piano trio in their native Czech Republic, the Smetana Trio has only recently begun touring North America, developing a stellar word of mouth reputation in a matter of months. “There is nothing routine about the Smetana Trio’s approach to this engaging repertoire. Every aspect of their interpretation is carefully considered without losing an ounce of spontaneity. Individual lines are remarkable for their focus and beauty, though the powerful sense of ensemble is never sacrificed to individual display.” – BBC Music Magazine
