Anthology of Czech Piano Music, Volume 2

Over seven hours of Czech piano mastery

From renown Czech pianist Radoslav Kvapil comes a second collection (see: ALC-6001) of piano classics from Dvorak, Fibich, Martinu, Smetana, and Vorisek.  Includes two discs of Dvorak music played on the composer’s own Bosendorfer piano. Kvapil’s knowledge and understanding of Czech piano music is unrivaled, and his adroitness on the keyboard surely will delight all listeners.

“Kvapil plays with great understanding… deft and sensitive… There is scarcely a piece here without charm. Kvapil does not play them as a mere bag of sweets… whenever Martinu gestures, Kvapil knows exactly what the reference is and where it would lead eventually… Illuminating as well as entertaining… Anyone can take pleasure in Kvapil’s expert, sensitive performances, which touch delicately on the emotions beneath the surface…  Kvapil’s enthusiastic performances stress the classical background… much to enjoy.”  (Gramophone)
