Quote from: Bill on April 07, 2007, 05:58:04 PMDave,I am seeing this piece performed on other instruments than piano. It was originally written for piano, correct?
Quote from: George on April 07, 2007, 06:22:56 PMI was just going to say that I don't have this one, but then I just checked my favorite guidebook and it seems I do. It's Art Tatum. I've put it on for a spin and he sure has fun with this one, melding the jazz and classical styles nicely. If I were to get the whole set or any Dvorak set (I have nothing beyond the Tatum), I'd go for Kvapil on Supraphon.
Quote from: SonicMan on April 07, 2007, 06:32:55 PMBill - yes, I assumed that you meant the 'piano' version (here's a listing of the Brilliant Box) - but, I guess the work could certainly be played in other ways; I'll 'bow' to those in the know since I don't even own a version of this work in any modality - let's see what others may say - Dave
Quote from: SonicMan on April 07, 2007, 05:41:52 PMBill - I have about 2 dozen CDs of Dvorak's music, but absolutely no 'solo piano' discs! I have had my 'eye' on the Brilliant set shown below, but don't know the reviews - would appreciate comments from others concerning this part of his output - thanks. Dave
Quote from: Harry on April 10, 2007, 03:01:19 AMWell here it is Dave!I found them to be superb, recordingwise, but also artistically they are sound.Beautiful works to boot.
Quote from: Bill on April 10, 2007, 04:45:34 AMThat will do it for me....just put it toward the top of my wish list.

Quote from: SonicMan on April 10, 2007, 06:47:29 AMHarry - thanks for the comments - I think a Brilliant box of Dvoark's Solo Piano music is about to enter both of our CD collections!

Quote from: SonicMan on April 10, 2007, 07:13:16 AMHarry - I'll send you a hat or two (the latter just for the future - ) - I have a half dozen or so to keep the sun off my balding head on trips to the Carolina-Georgia coast in the summer!
Quote from: hornteacher on April 13, 2007, 11:42:08 AMJust been listening to Dvorak's Serenade for Winds. Anyone else familiar with this marvellous piece?
Quote from: Harry on April 13, 2007, 11:45:07 AMOf course, its one of his most popular works.I have the Philips recording with Marriner, but am non to pleased with that, so some recommendations would come in handy!
