2014 Around Dvořák Disc 1

Disc I begins on a festive note, with Mozart’s delightful Serenata notturna prefacing Schubert’s virtuosic Rondo brillant for Piano and Violin. Following these two masters of Viennese Classicism, Bedřich Smetana’s Bohemian fantasie offers listeners a piquant taste of Central European nationalism. These rich dual traditions come together in the flowing lyricism, rhythmic flair, and singular accent of Antonín Dvořák, whose Bass Quintet represents the composer’s coming of age.
