“At certain points it will be like a serious song, at others like a happy dance...” This was how Dvorák described the work which he was composing at the time to a friend in 1890. The word “Dumka” (plural “Dumky”) actually describes a Slavic dance-form with a noticeable alternation between melancholic and dance-like boisterous passages. The Dumka is a recurring theme in Dvorák's chamber music; although always only as a single movement. The unusual form of this piano trio – it has a succession of six “Dumky,” each with its own very distinctive character and great expressiveness – means that it is one of the Czech master's best-loved works.

    Henle is always a reliable edition with an honest score straight from the composer's hand. I wish Henle could find pianists to edit the fingering who have a more reasonable approach. Some of these fingerings are completely off and I find it more time consuming marking through the printed...

    finger numbers. I would rather there were no fingerings at all.

    any serious chamber music players.
