I grew up with two sisters who are musicians, Kerry (violinist) and Maureen (cellist), and I was blessed to grow up playing chamber music from a young age. It was an amazing experience to grow up in a household where music was always present.

In January 1856, a month after Smetana premiered his G minor Piano Trio, he performed Mozart’s D minor Concerto in a concert celebrating the centennial of Mozart’s birth in Prague. His playing, including cadenzas based on those by early Romantic composer Johann Nepomuk Hummel, was a critical success.
