Passionate Passages will take you on a musical journey through Bohemia, Spain, and an idyllic, pastoral scene in the countryside. Czech composer Antonín Dvorˇák began his career with a hit, his Slavonic Dances. The pieces, lively and full of national character, were well received at the time and today are considered among the composer’s most memorable works. Dvorˇák originally composed them for piano four hands, but the publisher was so impressed with them that he immediately requested the orchestral version. The rich and sweet Opus 72, No. 8 piece imagines a calmly swaying Bohemian couple dancing the Sousedská.
