There’s a definite, deeply melodic Eastern European flavour to this enormously attractive program, with its repertoire by Czech, Hungarian, and Czech/Canadian composers. Antonín Dvořák composed the third of his four Piano Trios in 1883, shortly after the death of his beloved mother. Much of it is so sorrowful and poignant that surely it must represent what he was feeling at that time. Yet all’s well that ends well, as the sun breaks through in the finale. The five compact movements that make up Ernő Dohnányi’s Serenade show this admirable Hungarian composer at his most charming. To celebrate the centenary of one of Canada’s most recognized composers, Czech-born Oskar Morawetz (1917-2007), Jonathan Crow and Angela Park perform Sonata No. 3 for violin and piano (1985). Les Veuves (The Widows) by Uriel Vanchestein, whose compositions have been performed on four continents in such prestigious venues as the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, and Carnegie Hall, completes the bill.
