Über Dvořák trio
The Dvořák Trio brings together three musicians – namely Ivo Kahánek, Jan Fišer and Tomáš Jamník – who all belong to the best performers of their trades. Having appeared on stage under the name “Trio Concertino” as early as 2004 at the Music Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague under the guidance of Prof. Josef Chuchro (a former member of the Suk Trio) and Ivan Klánský (a member of the Guarneri Trio), the three artists could soon celebrate their first success as the winners of the 9th Bohuslav Martinů Foundation Interpretation Competition the same year. In 2007, the ensemble was awarded the Prize of the Czech Chamber Music Society, a part of which was a debut in the Dvořák concert hall of the Rudolfinum in Prague. The Dvořák Trio performs outside the Czech Republic regularly. In 2007, the ensemble was invited to cooperate with the German foundation Villa Musica and their senior lecturers, Eszter Haffner and Jean-Claude Gérard. Their 2008 performance at the “Murten Classic” festival with the Capella Istropolitana, directed by Kaspar Zehnder, included A. Casella’s Triple Concerto. This was followed in 2009 by a tour of German cities with the National Theatre Chamber Orchestra, playing B. Martinů’s music, and a tour of chamber music concerts in Asia. The Trio then performed at the renowned Styriarte Graz festival with a purely Czech repertoire – A. Dvořák’s Dumky and B. Smetana’s Trio in g minor. The current season has seen the ensemble performing at the final concert of the Days of Czech-German Culture in Dresden as well as on one of the afternoon concerts in the Berlin Philharmonic.
