DVORAK Piano Trio No 3 in f Op 65; No 4 DUMKY

No 3...Composition Year, 1883

 The Piano Trio No. 4 in E Minor, Op. 90, B. 166, (also called Dumky trio from the subtitle 'Dumky', or 'ballad') is a piece by Antonín Dvořák for piano, violin and cello. It is among the composer's best-known works. Dvořák completed the trio on February 12, 1891. It premiered in Prague on April 11, 1891, with violinist Ferdinand Lachner, cellist Hanuš Wihan, and Dvořák himself on piano.[1] The same evening, Prague's Charles University awarded the composer an honorary doctorate. The work was so well received that Dvořák performed it on his forty-concert farewell tour throughout Moravia and Bohemia, just before he left for the United States to head the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York City. The trio was published while Dvořák was in America and was proofread by his friend Johannes Brahms. At the same time it is a prominent example for a piece of chamber music deviating strongly from the sonata form.
