Product Details


Justly celebrated for his orchestral music, Antonin Dvorák was also a gifted composer of keyboard works. This original collection features a variety of his rich, Romantic piano pieces, from minuets to mazurkas to waltzes. Suitable for intermediate-level pianists, these selections include the Czech composer's beloved Scottish Dances, Op. 41, and Slavonic Dances, Opp. 46 and 72. Before the publication of his Slavonic Dances, Dvorák was a relative unknown in the music world. Johannes Brahms introduced Dvorák to his own publisher, and the success of Dvorák's folksong-inspired Moravian Duets encouraged the composer to attempt another series with a dance-like character. Drawing upon the characteristic rhythms of Slavonic folk music, Dvorák created original melodies that secured his enduring fame. This compilation of his dance music for solo piano will enchant performers and listeners.
