Dvorak Society Newsletter

So good are these performances that I quite forgot I was listening to totally familiar works in an unusual setting. In the case of the Dvorák, I am sure there is evidence here that the composer was, far from being the poor writer for piano of popular myth, a true master of his medium, so well does the work develop. Perhaps I could have wished for a different coupling, such as one of the many other versions of Dvorák orchestral works that have never yet been recorded but that would be churlish, because this New World will take a great deal of beating. It is simply that good.
