Dvořák's Serenade in D Minor for Winds, Violoncello, & Bass - La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest 2017

1/26/2018; 27 minutes

The serenade is a venerable 18th-century form as practiced by Haydn, Mozart and others. In his "Serenade in D Minor" Antonin Dvořák adapted the form to his own purposes, scoring for an unusual combination of instruments and introducing an unusual thematic unity. The result is a piece of good-spirited, sunny music that reflects Dvořák's own optimistic personality. Recorded on 08/20/2017. (#33144)
