Description

The music of Antonin Dvor k 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 invites readers to celebrate his extraordinary achievement and experience the pleasure of getting to know more than 90 of his most important works. This edition also includes links to online audio of two full-length CDs from Suprahon Records with 22 works.
