Around Dvořák: Disc 6 (2014)

<em>Around Dvořák:</em> Disc 6

Having achieved great renown for cultivating a distinctly Czech musical idiom, Antonín Dvořák accepted an invitation in 1891 to lead the National Conservatory in New York and guide a rising generation of American composers. Upon arrival, he found exciting potential for a truly American voice through Native and African American melodies, rhythms, and harmonies. Seeking to lead by example, Dvořák composed his famous symphony From the New World and American-inspired chamber music including the Sonatina for Violin and Piano. Disc VI pairs Dvořák with American composers who fulfilled Dvořák’s vision of a genuinely American style: Charles Ives, whose songs lifted this unfolding folk idiom to new heights, and contemporary master George Crumb, whose kaleidoscopic ear reimagines America’s most popular folk music.

The Circus Band
All summer long, we boys
dreamed 'bout big circus joys!
Down Main street, comes the band,
Oh! "Ain't it a grand and glorious noise!"

Horses are prancing, knights advancing;
Helmets gleaming, pennants streaming,
Cleopatra's on her throne!
That golden hair is all her own.

Where is the lady all in pink?
Last year she waved to me I think,
Can she have died? Can! that! rot!
She is passing but she sees me not.
Charles Ives
