|Dumky Trio, France, 2012|
Tour Dates: 11 Oct - 22 Oct, 2012
The word 'Dumky' refers to Antonín Dvořák's work. The three artists of the Dumky Trio have found in this composer a powerful and obvious inspiration at the heart of their coherence and identity.
Several stays at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada, with the support of AFAA, have allowed the Dumky Trio to evolve amidst great musicians such as Menahem Pressler (Beaux‐Arts Trio), Lorand Fenives and Tibor Varga. The Trio has since been invited back to the Centre to pass on its experience and passion of music.
Awarded by the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation, the ensemble has performed in many festivals and venues in France such as the International Festival of Besançon, the Orangerie de Sceaux Festival, and the Louvre Auditorium. Supported by Culture France, the trio has travelled all over the world, to Italy, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic, Romania, Turkey, Canada, and the United States. The Trio has performed in venues as famous and legendary as the Rudolfinum in Prague and the Bucharest Philharmonic (Atheneum Georges Enescu).
The Dumky Trio's discography includes Brahms, Schumann, and a recording of Canadian composers which was elected as the 1998 Best Classical Album by the Globe and Mail. More recently, a complete recording of Antonin Dvořák's trios was awarded 5 Diapasons.
In 2009 and 2010, the DUMKY TRIO recreated pieces by Francine Aubin and Ivan Bellocq and toured throughout the world.
