Evening Masterwork: Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings

Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

Serenade for Strings in E, Op. 22, by Antonin Dvorak

Evening Masterwork for August 2, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

In Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings, we hear the young composer starting to make a name for himself, pouring his talent for melody into the work. Not only that, but Dvorak wrote the piece in less than two weeks. His Serenade for string orchestra is a work that stands out in the genre, and it’s a work that reflects a successful period of the composer’s life. It’s our Evening Masterwork, tonight at 7, on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
