The Smetana Trio, comprised of violinist Jan Talich, cellist Jan Pálenícek, and pianist Jitka Cechová, is today’s foremost Czech chamber ensemble. “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.” (BBC Music Magazine) Founded in 1934, the Smetana Trio advances the interpretational ideals created by its illustrious predecessors. They present in Ithaca a program of Martinu, Rachmaninoff, and Smetana; their energy, emotional range, and flawless technique "ensures that the listener is completely involved in the drama from first bar to last.” (BBC Music Magazine)
