DvořákSlavonic Dances Nos. 6-8

Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, like the Hungarian Dances of his mentor Brahms, were crafted to capture the spirit of eastern Europe for the benefit of a wide audience. We’ll enjoy these festive pieces alongside the composer’s picturesque Serenade for wind instruments – while keeping it in the family with the gorgeous, intimate Serenade for strings by Josef Suk, Dvořák’s son-in-law.
