Afternoon Classics - Tuesday, September 8, 2009

It is always fun to put together a program of music by Antonin Dvorak. He has such a variety in his output that you can always find something to fit the time you have to fill. Take for instance the last hour of this program. But before we start with Dvorak let us hear from our old friend - Mr. Boccherini:

String Quartet in G minor, G.194, Op. 24#6 by Luigi Boccherini. Fabio Biondi with Europa Galante performing.
And now for the music of Antonin Dvorak:
Slavonic Dances No.s 5 in A & No. 6 in D, Op. 46 with Yoel Levi and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performing.
Bagatelles for String Trio & Harmonium, Op 47 performed by Domus.
Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 53 played by Nathan Millstein - violin; William Steinberg conducting the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
Toying, Poetic Tone Pictures, Op. 85, No. 2 performed by Gerald Robbins - piano.
Piano Quintet in A major, Op. 5 performed by Antonin Kubalek - piano and the Lafayette String Quartet.
Slavonic Dance No. 1 in B major, Op. 72, No. 1 once again with Yoel Levi and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Symphony No. 9 in E minor, "From the New World" with Leonard Slatkin conducting the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra.
Serenade, Poetic Tone Pictures, Op. 85, No. 9, Gerald Robbins at the piano.
