The Auer Trio will give a concert at the Old Academy of Music on April 22; the programme will include one piece each by Hummel and Dvořák. Johann Nepomuk Hummel, the excellent composer and pianist, was taught by Mozart for some time as a child, what’s more, for free! The boy played the piano so well that Haydn even dedicated a sonata to him. Hummel’s Trio in G minor will be the first piece in the concert, and the second will also be a trio in G minor – Antonin Dvořák’s work from 1876. The play was inspired by a tragic event: the Dvořák couple lost their first daughter, Josefa, just a few days after her birth.
