Dvořák's Quintet in G Major - La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest 2017

2/5/2018; 32 minutes

Not the best-known of Dvořák's works, possibly because of its unusual instrument combination, the Quintet in G Major deserves to be heard more often. The doublebass adds a rich, deep sonority while occasionally providing a pulsing underpinning to the livelier passages. All in all this is spirited, lyrical music, reflective of Dvořák's increasing sophistication as a composer. Recorded on 08/09/2017. (#33140)
