The Bohemian Album

All this week, a new recording of the music of Dvorak as his excuse to champion the composer’s beautiful Serenade for Strings.

The Bohemian Album

Composed in 1875 after a generous financial gift from a commission in Vienna, the work is full of soaring melodies and rich orchestral sounds.And this performance from the Amsterdam Sinfonietta really brings the piece to life.

The Bohemian Album
is so-called because all the composers featured on the disc had their roots in Bohemia – an area richly influenced by folk music.
