Dvorák wrote no fewer than 93 songs for solo voice and piano, not counting the solo pieces for voice and organ and the numerous duets. In his songs he carried on the tradition of Schubert and Schumann, but – as the composer’s biographer Kurt Honolka has put it – with additional Czech folk vitamins.
"A wholly delectable disc, and one that should win many new friends for these songs in the composer's centenary year." - BBC Music Magazine, August 2004 (Choral and Song Disc of the Month)
“this new issue is most welcome: tasteful and often lovely performances and a generously comprehensive selection.” - Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
Gramophone Editor's Choice, July 2004
