Bold Souls. Bold Sounds.

Dvořák gives free rein to his inventiveness in his Symphonic Variations, taking a simple tune for a walk through twenty-eight contrasting moods from mysterious melancholy to folksy elation, ending in a cheeky Czech polka.

This is one of the most purely enjoyable works you’ll ever hear, abounding in charm and surprise. 

Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto, a staple of the bravura repertoire, is a dazzling display piece for trumpet. Haydn was writing for a new kind of instrument with an expanded range and he uses it to thrilling effect, as the trumpet nimbly leaps around the orchestra with Classical grace.
