About

Antonin Dvorak portrays folkloristic elements in his works like hardly any other composer of the Romantic era. His Slavonic soul is unmistakeably present with violinist Thomas Albertus Irnberger in conjunction with PKF Prague Philharmonia under the direction of Petr Altrichter.

The violin concerto in A minor op. 53, like the Mazurka op.49 and the Romance op.11 for violin and orchestra, exhibit many references to Bohemian folk dances and songs.

The Sonatina for Violin and Piano in g major op.100 on the other hand was written at the end of Dvorak's relocation to the 'New World' and shows the influence of the Negro Spiritual as well as of Irish and Scottish folk tunes. Featuring Pavel Kaspar, piano, this release also contains the Slavonic Dance in G minor op.46 No.2 and the Humoresque in G flat major op.101 No.7, arranged by Fritz Kreisler.
