Beethoven's delightful trio is partly inspired by a popular Viennese song containing the phrase "Before I go to work, I need something to eat."
Dedicated to his friend Arthur Honegger, a fellow member of Les Six, Poulenc's Sonata was commissioned by jazz great Benny Goodman, who premiered it (after Poulenc's sudden death in 1963) with pianist Leonard Bernstein.
The word "Dumky" refers to the dumka, or an epic ballad of a somber nature containing contrasting cheerful sections. Dvorak's "Dumky Trio" is among his most beloved chamber music compositions and dates from 1891.
