Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This live recording took place on September 13, 1997, on the occasion of the dedication of a Dvorák monument in Stuyvesant Square, New York, across the street from the house in which the composer lived during his two-year stay in the United States. The building itself, a row house of negligible architectural value, was torn down to make room for an expanding hospital facility. The composer's great-grandson, Josef Suk, came to New York to participate in the dedication festivities and perform the lovely Sonatina in G, a work that he plays with even more vigor (if a bit less purity of tone) than on his Supraphon recording. Suk also tosses in Kreisler's charming arrangement of the Humoresque in G-flat for good measure.

Burleigh's instrumental arrangement of the spiritual Deep River. Neither work lasts longer than three minutes, but they add a nicely festive touch to the proceedings...."
