It was in Prague and Brno, the two largest cities in what is now the Czech Republic, that Antonín Dvorák and Leo Janácek the principal representatives of the nineteenth-century Czech national school, along with Bedrich Smetana launched their respective compositional careers. While Janácek, thirteen years younger than Dvorák, saw the latter as a father figure, the two men shared the same poetic Slavic soul. Indeed, Janácek said of Dvorák: I could exchange his personality for his works; it is as if his melodies came straight from my heart. Nothing can ever break such a bond.

The Trio Wanderer pays tribute to Dvořák and his last two trios. Alongside the sombre interiority and fiery intensity of the Trio No.3 in F minor, this programme presents a new version of the famous Dumky Trio, to which the Wanderers owed their first great success on record. Passionate and melancholy by turns, it is also the most innovative and the freest of Dvořák’s trios. A fine symbol for the Trio Wanderer, which has just reached its 30th year of existence without ever ceasing to surprise and touch us. Happy anniversary and hats off!

Imagine a young lad in love that is what the piece is about! This is how Dvorák himself characterised The Cypresses, a work he composed at the age of twenty-three when he fell for the young actress Josefina ermáková (who was later to become his sister-in-law). Regardless of the fact that it is a juvenile and in many ways imperfect composition, Dvorák kept returning to it, exploiting its motives as material for his later opuses.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin made his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007 with Dvorák's vibrant Sixth Symphony, a concert that led to the invitation to become the Orchestra's Principal Guest Conductor in 2008. Returning to the symphony nine years later made for a 'fearsome' performance, coupled this time with Dvorák's powerful and strikingly original overture to Othello. Like Shakespeare's play, the piece is focussed on the dark side of human love and it completes Dvorák's trilogy of overtures, 'Nature, Life & Love'. This live concert recording of the Seventh Symphony comes from Nézet-Séguin's first year with the Orchestra; it might not be Dvorák's most popular symphony, but it's arguably his best.

Second in popularity only to the Ninth Symphony "From the New World," Dvorák's Twelfth String Quartet – which was dubbed the "American" Quartet by the public and media rather than the composer himself – is a work nearly synonymous with the composer's tenure in the United States. These were not the only two works inspired by his cross-sea voyage, however. The Thirteenth String Quartet in G major, Op. 106, though not imbued with the same folkloric characteristics, also came about following the composer's return from the States. The popularity of the "American" Quartet has resulted in a work that is arguably overplayed, making it difficult for new ensembles to find anything new or unique to say about it.

Classical music listeners resort to ethnic and national generalizations too often. Some of the most insightful Beethoven interpreters were French, and there are plenty of classic non-Czech recordings of Dvorák. Yet there's something uniquely satisfying about this version of the much-recorded Slavonic Dances (both sets, Op. 46 and Op. 72), and the satisfaction has something to do with the all-Czech origins. Take for example the match between the superb sound, recorded in Prague's Rudolfinium hall, and the texture of Jirí Belohlávek's Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, an ensemble he has molded into his own.

On esko we go on a musical journey across Europe to the extraordinary land of Bohemia (popularly known as esko, but officially means Czech), the homeland of two composers we have come to love so much. It doesn't seem to matter that we hardly know their country: the indescribable energy of the music, with its folk melodies and harmonies, revealing the essence of a nation steeped in a deep cultural history, takes us there instantly.
