Three composers inspired by their country’s folk traditions are featured in this concert. Dohnanyi’s Serenade alternates stunning virtuosity with poignant lyricism in fine Hungarian tradition. Z domoviny, popular pieces composed while Smetana was afflicted by deafness, evoke the composer’s native Bohemia, and Dvorák’s Quartet op. 87 enchants us with its Gypsy-themed episodes.
