Slavonic Dances for Two Pianists - Dvorak (showing national Czech character of his art - TV34060S)

£5.99

Product description

(featuring pianists Alfred Brendel and Walter Klien)

The two sets of "Slavonic Dances", featured on this album, owe a lot of their initial impetus, to Antonin Dvorak's (1841-1904) friendship with Johannes Brahms. The Czech was an obscure organist, before he came to the attention of Brahms, in 1876, the German being impressed by the young Dvorak's talent. Brahms had already written "Hungarian Dances" in the form of two books.

All of the melodies within "Slavonic Dances", are original - there is no attempt to re-create existing national folklore melodies, as the Hungarians Kodaly and Bartok had done, as had the German, Brahms, with "Hungarian Dances". Instead, Dvorak's main melodic influences in these works, are Beethoven, Schubert and Brahms himself.

Side One : Slavonic Dances : First Set Op.46.

Side Two : Slavonic Dances : Second Set Op.72.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX.
