Not all national treasures are made of gold. Take Antonín Dvořák’s Moravian Duets for female voices as an example!

These duets hold a special place in the composer’s oeuvre. Johannes Brahms enthusiastically recommended the lovely song collection to his Berlin publisher, and thanks to that, the Prague organist first drew international attention and became a respected composer.

About the Moravian Duets (and Slavonic Dances), German music critic Louis Ehlert wrote: “To put it briefly, here at last is a full-fledged and quite natural talent. A divine naturalness flows through this music because it is entirely in folk character. There is no trace of anything artificial or forced. As is always the case with great talents, there is plenty of humour in Dvořák’s music. How lovely it would be if a musician were once again to emerge, about whom we would need to quarrel as little as over the arrival of spring.”

Come listen to a selection of these musical treasures, thanks to which Antonín Dvořák rules the hearts of his listeners. To their divine naturalness, melodic inventiveness, and musical imagination, we will add readings from period texts and letter excerpts. And we promise that we will quarrel as little as over the arrival of spring…
