Antonin Dvořák with his family in New York

Musical promenades at the museums - Piano Trio

Every work in this concert has been influenced to a greater or lesser degree by traditional musical idioms. The finale of Haydn's Trio is imbued with the fleet-footed feel of gypsy music, while the mournful atmosphere of the Slavic dumka weighs heavy upon the entire Dvořák's Trio. The concert closes with the great Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla's Four Seasons, a piece underpinned—like all his music—by the sensual rhythm of the tango.
