Mieczysław Weinberg — Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 24
Antonín Dvořák — Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90, B. 166 "Dumky"
Pianist George Xiaoyuan Fu appears with violinist Josef Špaček and cellist Timotheos Gavriilidis-Petrin as the critically acclaimed Trio Zimbalist, named in homage to Efrem Zimbalist, violinist and former director of the Curtis Institute of Music.
Trio Zimbalist brings an expertly balanced program to the Phillips beginning with Joseph Haydn’s Piano Trio No. 39 in G major, sometimes called "Gypsy Rondo" as a nod to its Hungarian-sounding finale. They continue with Mieczysław Weinberg's fervent Piano Trio, composed in 1945 in reaction to the terrors of World War II. Antonín Dvořák's beloved Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor concludes the program, a piece better known by its subtitle "Dumky," which references a form of Ukrainian sung poem called a duma.
