Antonín Dvořák

This category features classical production music recordings of the composer Antonín Dvořák [Dvorak] (1841 - 1904) including his famous Serenade for Strings in E Major and the Cello Concerto in B Minor. Among all cello concertos, Dvořák's has been called "supreme," "the greatest", and the "king."

dvorak-classical-stock-music.jpg1875 was a fruitful year for Dvořák, during which he wrote his Symphony No. 5, String Quintet No. 2, Piano Trio No. 1, the opera Vanda, and the Moravian Duets. These were happy times in his life. His marriage was young, and his first son had been born. For the first time in his life, he was being recognized as a composer and without fear of poverty. He received a generous stipend from a commission in Vienna, which allowed him to compose his Fifth Symphony and several chamber works as well as the Serenade.

Dvořák is said to have written the Serenade in just 12 days, from 3–14 May. The piece was premiered in Prague on 10 December 1876 by Adolf Čech and the combined orchestras of the Czech and German theatres. It was published in 1877 in the composer's piano duet arrangement by Emanuel Starý in Prague. The score was printed two years later by Bote and Bock, Berlin.

The Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191, is the last solo concerto by Antonín Dvořák. Dvořák wrote the concerto while in New York for his third term as the Director of the National Conservatory. 

The piece is scored for a full romantic orchestra and is in the standard three-movement concerto format:

  1. Allegro (B minor then B major; about 15 minutes)
  2. Adagio, ma non troppo (G major; about 12 minutes)
  3. Finale: Allegro moderato – Andante – Allegro vivo (B minor then B major; about 13 minutes)
