Dvorák’s Piano Concerto is a beautiful and inspiriting work, rich in his characteristic melodic abundance and vivid colouring. Lyric and dramatic elements are effectively contrasted in the opening movement. The slow movement is an idyll of serenity with its theme of noble simplicity, the basis for a dialogue between soloist and orchestra that reaches no great climax but sustains a convincing atmosphere of deep peace prior to the vigorous finale.

His Fifth Symphony is a milestone work, one of those remarkable pieces that allow creative artists to unlock doors to new possibilities and opportunities. It has all the power and invention required to beguile, transport and agitate its audience, particularly in the stormy finale. Written in 1903, Suk’s sunny Scherzo Fantastique is partly an homage to his father-in-law, Dvorák. It has two themes in the first part, a lively dance for woodwinds and a waltz introduced by the cellos, before a slow polka leads to an exuberant conclusion.
