Vítězslav Novák - Orchestral Works - Korsár Overture - Serenade - Maryša - Bergische Symphoniker, Romely Pfund - MD&G 2003

Here are three early works by the major-yet-neglected Czech composer Vítězslav Novák. The first work on the program, "Korsár" was written when Novák was 22 years old and the last, "Maryša" when he was 28 years old. The Serenade from 1894 is the most substantial work, lasting almost 37 minutes.



I have no time whatsoever to comment on the music but I shall do so later, hopefully this
evening.

Enjoy everyone

Hola doctor T. Por lo tanto, usted tiene algunas de estas obras, sino en un disco diferente? Es una grabación de mayor Supraphon por casualidad? Novak es un buen compositor tal, pero lamentablemente su música es eclipsado a menudo por otros compositores checos. ¡No tiene sentido! El primer disco Novak he publicado aquí (hace 1 año tal vez ya) es uno de mis favoritos, tiene "En Los Tatras" en él, etc., una gran grabación.

su principal hombre del planeta clásica

That is easy. The Bartok concerto is for me the top. I'm just an amateur player, so most viola music is far to difficult for me. I'm playing is an amateur orchestra and once I was so lucky to play the orchestral part.
The sonata by Shostakovich is also marvellous.
Thanks for your contribution to my collection.
Regards. Toon.
