Limited 27 CD set. Lilting melodies and exhilarating dance rhythms; gentle pathos, brooding drama and robust high spirits; the spirit of rural Bohemia and the sophistication of Prague, Vienna, New York and London in the late 19th century: Antonin Dvork's music is unfailingly distinctive and captivating. In all his works - from the epic 'New World' Symphony and Cello Concerto to the irresistible Slavonic Dances, haunting 'American' String Quartet, quirky violin Humoresque and yearning Song to the Moon - he is a composer whose heart is open and generous, and whose love for his homeland always shines through. This box provides an illuminating and enriching survey of his works, including his complete symphonies. A number of the celebrated performers have Slavonic roots themselves; all their interpretations draw on a deep affinity with Dvork's inspiration and humanity.
