Details of Dvorak's Dumky Trio and the Ticket Luck value
One of the best known works of the famous Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak, is Dvorak's Dumky Trio. Known fully as the Piano Trio No. 4 in E Minor, it is a piece of classical music made up of cello, piano and violin music. It is a spectacular example of chamber music that deviates from the sonata form and has gained much acclaim over the past few years. It is widely performed in many parts of the world, though not as much as the New World Symphony. For those fond of this work of art by the Czech composer, Dvorak's Dumky Trio tickets are available to hear it live.
Dvorak's Dumky Trio is named after the subtitle Dumky, which stands for epic ballads. It was widely used during the nineteenth century by Slavic composers to describe classical music that contained brooding, introspective and cheerful pieces of music. Referred as the dumka form, it was used by Antonin Dvorak in many of his other compositions, including Slavonic Dance No. 2, Dumka for Solo Piano, Piano Quintet and String Sextet. Dvorak completed this piece in 1891, followed closely by a premiere in Prague. It featured the composer himself playing piano and featured cellist Hanus Wihan and violinist Ferdinand Lachner.
The premiere of Dvorak's Dumky Trio took place when the Charles University in Prague honored Dvorak with an honorary doctorate. It received massive acclaim during its premiere, so much so that it was part of his forty concert long farewell tour through Bohemia and Moravia right before he left to head the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City. The Dumky Trio was also published while he was in the US, proofread by none other than legendary composer Johannes Brahms, who was also Dvorak's close friend.
Piano Trio No. 4, otherwise known as the Dumky Trio, is made up of six sections. A Lento Maestoso in E minor and major is followed by a Poco Adagio in C minor. An Andante in A major marks the third section, followed by Andante Moderato in the Quasi Tempo di Marcia style, in D minor and major. The fifth section of the piece is Allegro in E major and minor. The piece is wrapped up by a Lento Maestoso in C minor and major. This piece of classical music also features six dumky episodes, interspersed here and there. The first three of these are joined and they form a sort of long first movement. The other three are presented in such a way that they give an impression of a four movement structure.
This work of art has been praised by many critics. Daniel Felsenfeld, for one, describes it as 'structurally simple but emotionally complicated, being an uninhibited Bohemian lament'. Many more musicologists and critics have praised his work, as have those who had the opportunity of catching the work played live by some of the finest musicians in the industry.
Antonin Dvorak was a Czech composer whose music uniquely employed folk Czech music; from his native Bohemia to Moravia, both part of the then Austrian Empire. His music reflected the Czech nationalist sentiment of that period.
Dvorak was born in Nelahozeves and showed an aptitude for music at a young age. His first work is said to have been written when he was but fifteen years old. He would go on to study the organ and the violin, playing the latter for the Bohemian Provisional Theater Orchestra. At the beginning of his career, he attracted the interest of the likes of Johannes Brahms, Louis Ehlert and Eduard Hanslick. Today, his works are the talk of the town in classical music, and this upcoming concert of his Piano Trio No. 4 can be seen live with Dvorak's Dumky Trio tickets in hand.
