Dumka (plural: dumky) is really a Ukrainian word meaning ' lament But dumky — melancholy and wildly passionate folk ballads, often with interludes of reckless gaiety-are common to most of the Slavonic peoples, to Great Russians, Czechs, and Poles as well as the Ukrainians.
The term seems to have specially appealed to Dvorak, for he introduced dumka movements in a number of his chamber works (e.g., the Sextet, Op. 48, the String Quartet in E flat, Op. 51, etc.). But in 1890-91 he composed this trio consisting solely of dumky. They are six in number and are thematically independent of each other, but the first three run into each other without a break.
The Trio is one of the most characteristic of all Dvorak's chamber works. The three instruments are made to suggest an astonishing range of tone colour.

Tchaikovsky once wrote an analysis of this symphony, from which we quote: 'It is the last bright smile, the last response given by the poet of human sorrows and hopeless despair to the voice of gladness..... It is filled with a restrained joy. It depicts the gentle, earthly delights of humanity before the soul is distracted by evil, doubt, and despair.'
' Parents and how to live with them '
