Dvořák Serenade for Wind Instruments op 44
The RCM Wind Ensemble explores music by composers with roots in the beautiful region of Bohemia – spanning present-day Czechia and Hungary – known for its vibrant folkloric traditions.
A set of spirited folk dances and a delicate, stately serenade – these are the works that launched the young Dvořák’s career in Europe, earning high praise from his mentor, Brahms. Heard alongside Mátyás Seiber’s gentle pastoral work, and Grażyna Bacewicz’s charming quintet, this programme is a journey through a rich cultural heritage.
