Around Dvořák: Disc 2 (2014)

<em>Around Dvořák:</em> Disc 2

Complementing the irresistible influence of his Czech musical heritage, Dvořák likewise aspired to write music of broader, more universal appeal. Disc II explores the foundation of Viennese Classicism that Dvořák drew upon, beginning with music by the father of the Classical style, Joseph Haydn, whose contributions to the piano trio literature elevated the genre from light salon music to chamber music of the highest sophistication. Franz Schubert inherited the tradition cultivated by Haydn and ushered it into the Romantic era. The tradition is further explored in Dvořák’s pastoral Opus 51 String Quartet, which realizes the potential of this new aesthetic.
