"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."
