Rimsky Korsakov - Snow Maiden Suite
Grieg - Four Norwegian Dances
Dvorak - Symphony No. 6 in D
The Snow Maiden Suite is taken from the composer’s score for the opera of the same name, and consists of an Introduction, The Dance of the Birds, The Cortège, and the Dance of the Tumblers.
The Four Norwegian Dances are inspired by an earlier collection of folk tunes by Lindeman. Originally composed for piano, many subsequent arrangements have been made.
The 6th Symphony marks the culmination of the development of Dvorak’s orchestral style, with classical form allied to Czech musical tradition, including a third movement scherzo in the form of a Furiant.
