Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The music of Antonin Dvorak defies fashion. He is one of the very few composers whose works entered the international mainstream during his own lifetime, and some of them have remained there ever since. The pieces that historically define his international reputation, however, represent only a small fraction of what he actually composed. They comprise just one facet of his complex and remarkably rich artistic personality. This book/2-CD pack invites readers to celebrate his extraordinary achievement and experience the pleasure of getting to know more than 90 of his most important works. The two full-length CDs from Suprahon Records include 22 works.

Book News Annotation:

A New York freelance percussionist/Classical Internet awards founder identifies themes of some 90 works of Dvor<'a>k (1841- 1904), going beyond the familiar. Hurwitz includes a timeline of Dvor<'a>k's compositions in the context of contemporaneous musical landmarks. Listening guides are grouped by themes both expected (e.g., "Slavonic Works," "American Works") and unexpected (e.g., "Dvor<'a>k and Wagner"). Lacks an index. The two companion CD-ROMs contain 22 Dvorak selections.
