Founded in 1934, Smetana Trio is today’s foremost Czech chamber ensemble. Currently comprised of Jitka Čechová (piano), Jiří Vodička (violin), and Jan Páleníček (cello), the trio perpetuates the interpretational ideals created by their illustrious predecessors as well as other superlative 20th-century chamber music soloists. The Smetana Trio was recently awarded the 2017 BBC Music Magazine Award, the world’s only classical music award voted on by the public.
