Dvorak Symphony No 6, Janacek Idyll

Seattle Symphony, Gerard Schwarz (conductor)

Seattle Symphony Collection

Antonin Dvorak's was a strong voice in the re-establishment of Czech musical identity, and the noble themes, open landscapes and dancing Scherzo of the Symphony No 6 bear the stamp of a genius at his height. The work can also be heard as a tribute to Brahms, who had helped him earlier in his career. Janacek's charming Idyll reflects his preoccupation with Moravian folk-songs and rhythms as well as the influence of his friend Dvorak, identified by Jaroslav Vogel as the work's 'spiritual godfather'.
