America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
It was in 1878 that Dvorak first incorporated the rhythms of Czech folk dances into his music. The opening march pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the serenades of Mozart and central European wind-band music, "Harmoniemusik." The second movement is actually comprised of two Czech folk dances, the sousedska (neighbor's dance) and a furiant as the "trio" section. In the third movement, Dvorak unfolds a typically lovely melody, while the finale rolls along with the high-spirited folk dances and a reminiscence of the opening march theme to end the work jubilantly in the key of D major.
