Quartet of stellar musicians perform Beethoven, Dohnányi and Dvořák

Antonín Dvořák composed his First Piano Quartet with Mozartian briskness in just eighteen days, but this is definitely not a trivial work. In it, at age thirty-three, Dvořák demonstrated that he was becoming an original, extraordinary composer. This year, Dvořák’s piano quartets are an important contribution to the series Dvořák Collection, one of the festival’s long-term projects.

The central figure in these performances is the pianist Lukáš Vondráček, who has invited the violinist Josef Špaček, the violist Pavel Nikl, and the cellist Tomáš Jamník not only to join him in playing Dvořák’s piano quartets, but also to present themselves in their first joint performance at the festival as a string trio. They will be commemorating this year’s major Ludwig van Beethoven anniversary with a performance of his String Trio in C Minor along with the Serenade for String Trio in C Major by Ernst von Dohnányi. In comparison with the classicist Beethoven, in his Serenade Dohnányi gives us the impression that Dvořák was discreetly making suggestions to the composer.


  • Ludwig van Beethoven: String Trio in C minor, Op. 9, No. 3
  • Ernst von Dohnányi: Serenade for String Trio in C major, Op. 10
  • Antonín Dvořák: Piano Quartet No. 1 in D major, Op. 23, B. 53
