Simpler pleasures run deep in reissue of fine disc of music for violin and piano by Antonin Dvorák
The disc's programme showcases the composer's wide range of styles. You'll find all the details as well as audio samples here.
A salon piece like the Op. 100 Sonatina in G Major, one of the gorgeous pieces Dvorák wrote while vacationing in Iowa, gets the gossamer treatment from both Marwood and Tomes.
The duo changes approach and really dig into their instruments in the brooding (and misleadingly titled) Op. 15 Ballad.
The most notable thing about this recording is balance and clarity. The violin and piano are equal partners in all of these elegant performances.
There isn't anything on YouTube from this album, so, instead, here are Marwood and Tomes joined by cellist Richard Lester in Dvorák's "Dumky" Piano Trio No. 3, in E Minor, Op. 90 (If you only have time to listen to one clip, I recommend the second, which begins with the third of the piece's six dumkas):
If you really love this trio, there is a gorgeous recording of it by Toronto's Gryphon Trio on the Analekta label. Details here.
