Liner Notes

Sung in impeccable Czech – a lovely recording in a very special category.

Timothy Robinson – Tenor
Graham Johnson – Piano
The Delme String Quartet: Galina Solodchin, John Trusler – Violins; John Underwood – Viola; Jonathan Williams – Cello

Dvorák never lost his love for his sister-in-law and this beautiful lyrical music, written in the heat of youthful passion, became an inspired source to which he kept returning in his later works, such as the well-known Four Songs Op.2 and the Love Songs Op.83.
