Synopsis

Album Description
Antonín Dvo¡rák has long been known as one of music's supreme melodists, but his songs have not made quite the headway of his best-known works. Now 30 of them are given a new lease on life in transcriptions for violin, viola, and piano by his great-grandson, Josef Suk--the viola pieces performed on Dvo¡rák's own instrument, restored especially for this recording! Also featuring Vladimir Ashkenazy, this disc offers two of the world's greatest musicians playing, together for the first time, beautiful music in versions never heard before.
