Slovak composer Mikuláš Schneider-Trnavský (1881–1958) was one of the first half of the 20th century‘s leading proponents of Slovak music. His output focussed mainly on the Slovak heritage of folk songs, and on liturgical music. Trnavský did not compose much chamber music; his only truly important work in this field is the Sonata in G minor for Violin and Piano, Op. 12, of 1904. This composition reflects elements of the composer´s youthfully explosive personality: namely, wit, melodic invention, and a tendency towards lyrical idiom and meditativeness. The sonata has been recognized as one of the mainstays of Slovak classical chamber music. The Czechoslovak Chamber Duo was formed in 2004 by Czech violinist Pavel Burdych and Slovak pianist Zuzana Berešová. Both artists have been regular guests at music festivals in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany, as well as making frequent concert appearances in capitals around the globe, including Rome, Paris, Lisbon, Seoul, Bucharest, Sofia, Athens, Prague, and Bratislava. Thanks to their Czechoslovakian roots, they often receive invitations from Czech and Slovak expatriate communities in various countries. Every year, they mount projects centred around anniversaries of major composers.

Performers: The Czechoslovak Chamber Duo has earnt the accolades of audiences and critics alike for its high professional standards, flawless co-ordination, and musicality. For more detailed information go to the Duo´s Pavel Burdych studied violin firstly at the Conservatory in Pardubice, and therafter with Bohumil Smejkal at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno.
