KDA WELCOMES THE SMETANA TRIO

Kirshbaum Demler & Associates is delighted to announce the addition of the Smetana Trio to our roster. Founded in 1934, today's incarnation of the ensemble - violinist Jana Nováková, cellist Jan Pálenícek and pianist Jitka Cechová - celebrated 10 years together in 2010 and is one of the premier Czech ensembles of today.

"Energy, a gripping emotional range and flawless technique are just a few things that come to mind on listening to the Smetana Trio's recording of the Trios in F minor, Op. 65 and No. 4, Op. 90, or the ‘Dumky'. Crisp, determined passages contrast with moments of sublime legato where bowing is so flawless that the cello's and violin's interlocking melodies melt into one inseparable world. The three performers listen to each other so acutely that, if you were at a live performance, you'd be afraid to breathe for fear of interrupting: each member of the trio responds to the tiniest nuance... they live the music and you can't help but to live it with them." - BBC Music Magazine
