Dvořák: Dumky Trio (Piano Trio No. 4 in E Minor)
Osborne: Adagio for Vedran Smailovic

Eastern European composers Dvořák, Janáček and Bartók travelled extensively, absorbing folk influences and imbuing their music with traditional forms. Nigel Osborne is one of the most travelled composers alive today whose thirst for foreign cultures has taken him all over the globe. In his piano trio The Piano Tuner, taken from his opera of the same name based on the intriguing Daniel Mason novel about a piano-tuner sent to the Burmese jungle to tune a grand piano, Osborne explores the synthesis between Western and south-east Asian tuning in this powerful piece.
