Dvorak - Concertos
The Best of Czech Classics
You would be hard pressed indeed to find a great cellist who didn’t have Dvorák’s Concerto in B minor in his repertoire. There are dozens of recordings of various interpretations of the piano and violin concertos, which are among the very finest that have ever been written for these instruments.
This collection, intended for Dvorák devotees, also contains the lesser-known Cello Concerto in A major in orchestral instrumentation, originally composed with piano accompaniment. The smaller mood pieces for violin (Mazurek, Romance), cello (Rondo, Silent Woods) and orchestra supplementing this collection are a certain antipode to the large concertos.
If there can be said to be a “Dvorák” interpretative tradition, then the soloists on this CD, headed by the violinist Josef Suk (by the way, the composer’s great-grandson) and the pianist Ivan Moravec, are undoubtedly its standard-bearers.
And would it be possible to name an orchestra more deeply rooted in the Dvorák tradition than the Czech Philharmonic (conducted at one time by Dvorák himself)?
This CD presents Dvorák’s complete concertante oeuvre performed by those with a true calling.
